California Senate to Consider Law that would Require Labeling of Genetically Modified Agricultural Products

Image

California bill SB1381 would deem any product ‘mislabeled’ if it is partially or entirely genetically engineered and the label does not say so.  This bill is especially progressive because it allows any individual to sue the company for injunctive relief – that is, to halt mislabeled production until they appropriately disclose what contents are genetically modified.  This bill is especially friendly to consumers because any consumer that sues for mislabeling would be able to have all attorney fees paid for by the offending company.
