About Prop. 37
Proposition 37 would ban the sale of tens of thousands of perfectly-safe,
common grocery products only in California unless they are specially
repackaged, relabeled or made with higher cost ingredients. Prop 37 is a
deceptive, deeply flawed food labeling scheme that would add more government
bureaucracy and taxpayer costs, create new frivolous lawsuits, and increase
food costs by billions — without providing any health or safety benefits.
That's why Prop 37 is opposed by a broad coalition of family farmers,
scientists, doctors, business, labor, taxpayers and consumers.

Paid for by No on 37: Coalition Against the Deceptive Food Labeling Scheme,
sponsored by Farmers, Food Producers, and Grocers. Major funding by Monsanto
Company, E.I. DuPont de Nemours & Co., Grocery Manufacturers Association (GMA)
and more than 40 food company members. For a full list of donors visit 1-800-331-0850 -
