GMO Labeling

Oregon’s Measure 92, the effort that would require the labeling of food and beverages manufactured using bioengineered ingredients, went down to defeat, according to The Oregonian news service. With 92% of the votes counted in the state, the tally stood at 683,450 against the initiative and 666,843 in favor.

The results stand in stark contrast to a similar initiative on the ballot in Colorado that easily went down to defeat, with more than 65% of state voters voting against the initiative.
