GMA Statement on Defeat of Proposition 37 in California | GMA:

WASHINGTON, D.C.) – Today, the Grocery Manufacturers Association released the following statement in response to the defeat of Proposition 37 in California.

“GMA and its member companies are pleased that California voters have rejected Proposition 37. Proposition 37 was a deeply flawed measure that would have resulted in higher food costs, frivolous lawsuits, and increased state bureaucracies.

This is a big win for California consumers, taxpayers, businesses and farmers.

Foods and beverages that contain genetically engineered ingredients have been exhaustively studied (by manufactures) and all of the leading scientific and regulatory bodies, including the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), US Department of Agriculture, the World Health Organization and the American Medical Association, have concluded that these products are safe and are not materially different than their traditional counterparts.”
