Cracker Lawsuit

Golly, gee, another lawsuit over the possible use of GMO ingredients being labeled natural. How do you know this? Did you test it or are you assuming it? And people have evidently been harmed by this since 2008? If this has not been tested, then this is a good example of one of those lawsuits listed in Prop 37 that you don't actually have to prove actual harm or distress.

Prop 37 failed because people finally figured out it was more than just 'add it to the label'.

For Charles below, you hit it on the head. People do not realize how science has made our lives easier.

As for the lawsuit above, I am guessing that Sonya has to pay for another trip to some island getaway or those student loans she defaulted on.

There was one comment in the article that I agree with, the federal agencies need to step forward and create labeling laws that make sense. Otherwise, we are going to be swamped with more of these lawsuits which really do nothing more than raise the cost of producing goods.
