According to the Initiative-522 proposal, all raw foods labeled for retail sale would have to carry the words “genetically engineered” conspicuously printed on the front package or be deemed misbranded. The rules would become effective July 1, 2015.

In the case of bulk produce, the label would have to appear on the retail shelf or bin where the items are displayed.

Processed foods that contained GMOs would have to carry front labeling stating “may be partially produced with genetic engineering,” according to the proposal.

Let the games begin.
