Oregonians will decide in November whether to require food manufacturers and retailers to label genetically engineered (GE) foods. Washington considered a similar measure last November, but it was voted down.
Money has poured in to groups campaigning for and against the measure. The biggest donors to the “Yes on 92” campaign include Dr. Bronner’s, Mercola Health Resources, and the Organic Consumers Fund. The “No on 92” campaign’s biggest backers include the Grocery Manufacturers Association, Monsanto, and DuPont Pioneer.
