Richmond, California council backs GMO labeling bill

Mayor Gayle McLaughlin who supported the motion said Richmond residents have a right to know what’s in their food. “This is just the first step,” she said.

The city of Berkeley recently passed a motion similar to Richmond’s. However, Berkeley’s proposal is limited to fresh produce, which dramatically reduces its impact.
