NY & Colorado Poised to Label GMOs – Audio

From the Food Nation Radio News Desk

For the past 18 months, Food Nation Radio has followed the efforts to label genetically modified foods in Washington State.  While the ballots have been counted and the results were not what we had hoped for, in our opinion the final outcome of I-522 is still unknown.  An activist group known as Moms For Labeling helped raise awareness of the actions of the Grocery Manufacturers Association that were alleged to be unlawful. The Attorney General may yet take action against the GMA for their illegal campaign contributions that may have influenced I-522 voters.

In the meantime, the battle to label GMOs continues on a state by state basis and two new battleground states are moving to the forefront.  Grass root efforts are underway to inform consumers in both New York and Colorado and volunteers in those states are taking two very different routes.

Elizabeth Dougherty spoke with Stacie Orell of GMO Free New York and Larry Cooper of Right to Know Colorado about their individual state efforts and their very different routes to ensure their residents know what is in the foods they feed their families.
