GMO labeling vote and Whole Foods Grocery Stores
Wednesday, November 06, 2013
It is not final (mail in ballots are still being counted) but it appears that GMO labeling failed in the Washington state vote yesterday. If you are a proponent of labeling you will be encouraged to read this article about Whole Foods Groceries saying that all foods in their stores will be GMO free or labeled in 5 years.
BTW the vote was very close and given the huge $ spent for ads by Monsanto, DuPont and the Grocery Manufactures Assoc. ($22 million to be exact) it will not be surprising if labeling is defeated. You should be aware that the GMA received millions of $ from big food companies like Coca Cola, Pepsi, and Kraft.
