Labeling Genetically Engineered Food

October 17, 2012 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Join a timely and highly relevant conversation between Michael Dimock, President of Roots of Change, and Peggy Duvette, Executive Director of WiserEarth, about Proposition 37, a Mandatory Labeling of Genetically Engineered Food Initiative, which is on the November 6, 2012 ballot in California as an initiated state statute.

DATE: Wednesday Oct 17th 6:30pm – 8pm

LOCATION: TBA (San Francisco)

Free of charge.  RSVP

Snacks and drink will be served

If Proposition 37 is approved by voters, it will:

  • Require labeling on raw or processed food offered for sale to consumers if the food is made from plants or animals with genetic material changed in specified ways.
  • Prohibit labeling or advertising such food as "natural."
  • Exempt from this requirement foods that are "certified organic; unintentionally produced with genetically engineered material; made from animals fed or injected with genetically engineered material but not genetically engineered themselves; processed with or containing only small amounts of genetically engineered ingredients; administered for treatment of medical conditions; sold for immediate consumption such as in a restaurant; or alcoholic beverages."

Participants are invited to share their thoughts on the topic and ideas on how to insure the passage of Proposition 37.
