With news this past week of a mandatory GMO-labeling measure
officially making the Colorado ballot, many across the state are stressing that
a vote for Proposition 105 would only contribute to the ongoing state-by-state
patchwork of food-labeling and food-safety rules, which is confusing and
disruptive for farmers, other food producers and consumers.
Furthermore, implementing mandatory labels would create
added production costs, which would then be passed on to consumers, some of
whom already struggle with their grocery bills.
