Whole Foods to Label Genetically Modified Products

Hosted by

Whole Foods Market has announced plans to become the first US retailer to require labeling of all genetically modified foods sold in its stores. In California, often called America's food basket, the food industry spent millions of dollars last year to defeat a ballot initiative to require the labeling of genetically modified foods. Now Whole Foods will go the way of the European Union. Stephanie Strom, who reports for the New York Times, has more on the possible impact.
