Seeking to crush a groundswell movement in America to label genetically modified foods, a small group of multi-billion-dollar pesticide, biotech and Big Food corporations have poured $14 million into Colorado to try to defeat Proposition 105, a grassroots voter initiative to label GMO foods.

Also of note among the anti-labeling donors are Abbot Nutrition and Mead Johnson, corporations that make nutritional formulas for infants and the elderly - companies that do not want mandatory GMO labeling on their packaging.
