Help Require Labeling of Genetically Engineered Food
Original post made by GMO Labeler, Downtown North, on Feb 25, 2012
Fifty countries including all major European countries and Japan have laws mandating disclosure of genetically engineered food.
An initiative is being circulated for the November ballot to require labeling. It is noninvasive and does not prevent the production or purchase of these products. The intent is purely to provide information so consumers can choose and not inadvertantly violate dietary or religious preferences.

Volunteers are available to collect signatures at downtown Whole Foods on Saturday afternoons and Sundays at the California Avenue farmers' market.
