The ingredients label on a bag of non-dairy cheese substitute indicates it is a non-GMO food product, in Los Angeles, California, October 19, 2012. California could become the first US state to enforce labeling of genetically modified foodstuffs also know as GMO's, in a vote next month pitting agro-chemical manufacturing giants against die-hard opponents of so-called 'frankenfoods.' The state will vote on November 6 – the same day as the White House election – on the ballot initiative, which backers claim will let consumers know exactly what they are eating, but critics say will pander to unjustified fears about genetic engineering.
