California Considers Labeling Genetically Engineered Salmon

The non-profit Center For Food Safety is reporting that the state of California is moving forward with a bill that would require genetically engineered fish be labeled:

California Assembly Health Committee Passes Bill To Require Labels On Genetically Engineered Salmon, May 4, 2011

The FDA won't be requiring labels, so it looks like it's up to the states. I hope it passes.
