I voted against it. There is no scientific proof that gmo food have any effect on our health. Granted they probably aren't that great for us but we don't have $ to spend on making the rules about the labels and enforcing them. Some of the proposed labels don't make any sense anyway. Why would company's have to label dog food containing gmo beef but not beef for human comsumption?

I think pet food should be labeled, too. I don't think tax payer dollars would be used for private corporations to label their food. There is research linking GMOs with cancer and obesity, I haven't seen any impartial studies saying GMOs come without risk. Even if it's safe to consume GMOs are bad for the environment and we should have the right to choose products for whatever reason. Labels will help us make those choices.

Hurray, now people can see that I care because you could not PAY me to buy organic.  And I will be happy to show the world my cart full of GMO clearly labeled foods.

I heard about this, too! I just moved to Eastern WA from a different state, and didn't even know this was in the works. I'm super happy to be here now!

What a ridiculous thing to say.

So you're telling me...if you had 2 canned food items in your hands, same price, neither are organic, one is labeled GMO and the other is not, you would purposely pick the one labeled GMO? For what logical reason?
