settled question on option 'No'.
A California initiative to require labeling of foods containing genetically modified ingredients appeared headed for the ballot in November after organizers said on Wednesday they had gathered nearly 1 million signatures in favor of the measure.
The hotly contested proposal is similar to measures being pushed in other U.S. states and at the federal level as GMO opponents demand more transparency in food products.
The California measure would require labeling of foods made with biotech corn, soybeans, canola, or other biotech crops to specify that they were "produced with genetic engineering."
More than 971,000 people signed the "Right to Know" petition, far more than the 555,236 needed to qualify for the November 6 ballot, said Stacy Malkan, spokeswoman for the ballot initiative.
