Washington To Vote On GMO Labeling Law

SEATTLE — SEATTLE (AP) — Washington’s voters are deciding whether to label food that contains genetically modified ingredients in a campaign that has drawn millions of dollars from out of state. The Grocery Manufacturers Association, which collected money from some of the nation’s top food companies, and five major corporations have raised $22 million to defeat Initiative 522. Food-labeling supporters have raised $7.8 million, backed by Dr. Bronner’s Magic Soaps and consumer groups. I-522 supporters say consumers have the right to know what’s in the food they buy, while opponents say the measure would lead to higher food costs.
