10/16/2013

You’ve no doubt read and heard about Washington Initiative 522, which concerns the labeling of genetically modified foods.

According to the Office of the Secretary of State, this measure would require most raw agricultural commodities, processed foods, seeds, and seed stocks, if produced using genetic engineering, as defined, to be labeled as genetically engineered when offered for retail sale.

On Wednesday, Oct. 23, the Yes on 522 side will be on campus and represented by Trudy Bialic, director of public affairs for PCC Natural Markets. No on 522 will be represented by Jill Fagen. The presentation is from 9-10:15 a.m. in Clearview Building 121.
