"OLYMPIA, Washington -- With one day before the election in Washington State, grassroots organization Food Democracy Now! is urging its 650,000 members and citizens everywhere to make calls urging voters to support Yes on 522, a ballot initiative that would require labeling of foods containing genetically modified organisms."
"Initiative 522 is a measure before Washington voters on the November 5 ballot, requiring mandatory labeling of genetically engineered foods, seeds and seed products. These are foods that have genes from a different species inserted into their DNA, like a corn plant with genes from a bacterium.
Polls have shows that a majority of Washingtonians support the ballot initiative. If voters back the measure, Washington would be the first state to require GMO labeling with no strings attached."
