In November, Californians will vote on Prop 37 requiring that GE foods be labeled. Just as labels list fat, sodium and sugar, labels should tell the buyer whether or not the product includes genetically engineered ingredients. Unfortunately, major corporations like Monsanto are pouring billions of dollars into this election in order to confuse voters, and protect their bottom line.
Kristin Bauer van Straten posted the following message on her Facebook:
Aside from my film Out For Africa and my love of animals, I also believe that we should label GMOs! Please take a look at the video I participated in with Dave Matthews, Danny DeVito, Bill Maher, and many more in support of California Prop37 and labeling GMOs in California! Oh, and this video is premiering on the television show Extra tonight, so please share with all your friends and family in California and lets demand our right to know!

“What makes you think you have the right to know?” asks Danny DeVito in a witty, ironic public service announcement by the political action committee sponsored by consumer advocacy group Food & Water Watch in support of Proposition 37. California’s ballot initiative to label genetically engineered foods. A diverse, all-star cast joins DeVito in the “Right to Know” PSA, including Bill Maher, Dave Matthews, Jillian Michaels, Emily Deschanel, John Cho, Glenn Howerton, Kaitlin Olson, KaDee Strickland and Kristin Bauer van Straten.
