GM food in the spotlight again   
Friday, 12 October 2012

Produced by Samara Barr

Story audio

The labelling of Genetically Modified food has been brought into debate again with California looking to pass Proposition 37. If passed it would mean US food makers have to label their products that contain GMO's. Australia already has GM labelling laws and while some think these aren't enough, others see them as unnecessary.
