If Proposition 37 passes, California would become the first state in the nation to require new labels on a host of food products commonly found on grocery store shelves. Here are the specifics of what it would do:

  • Require that genetically engineered foods sold in the state, including raw fruits and vegetables, be clearly labeled as genetically engineered.

  • Require the state Department of Public Health to regulate the labeling.

  • Allow individuals to sue food manufacturers who violate the measure's labeling provisions.
