  • This November, California voters might make history through Proposition 37 (“Prop 37”) by requiring labels on all food products sold within the state with genetically engineered (GE) origins or ingredients. If passed, Prop 37 will be the first of its kind at the state or national level. Prop 37 will cover a wide range of food products and allow private citizens to file suits against alleged violators, and thus has the potential to parallel the course of the now-famous Proposition 65 that has left its mark on the California business and legal worlds for more than 25 years.
