Medford, Ore. -- A statewide grassroots campaign has collected enough signatures to add their measure to the November ballot.
If passed, the measure backed by the non-partisan campaign "Oregon Right to Know" would require grocery stores to label foods produced using genetically modified organisms (GMOs).
Opponents of the measure said the majority of Oregonians want labels on GMOs so they can make informed decisions about what they eat.
Oregon Right to Know raised more than 155,000 signatures. They needed just over 87,000. Now the Secretary of State will count and verify the signatures.
Opponents of the measure said labeling would be misleading and raise the cost of food.
This isn't the first time Oregonians have seen a measure like this. A similar labeling initiative failed back in 2002.
