State retailers opting to label GMOs

Allow GMO labeling

Thank you The Seattle Times for printing this article that presents credible evidence that people in Washington state prefer to know what we are eating [“Customers pushing for GMO labeling in state,” NWSunday, May 5].The Bellingham grocer gave his shoppers the option to label, not label or eliminate genetically modified products. This is clear evidence that the industries claim that labeling will kill their ability to market genetically modified products. These citizens had the opportunity to have the items removed, but chose labeling..

Save your millions, biotechs et al., because we will label genetically engineered organisms in Washington state.
