"Washington State Voters Reject Labeling of GMO Foods"

"Washington state voters on Tuesday rejected an initiative that would have required foods containing genetically engineered ingredients to be labeled."

"The vote was 54.8% opposed to labeling and 45.2% in favor of it.

Had it passed, Initiative 522 would have made the state the first in the nation to require such labeling.

The initiative was the most expensive in state history, though it was largely fought by out-of-state interests."
