Food Companies Against Our Right to Know

The Big Processed Food companies dumped another $5-plus million into the No on 37 campaign on Friday, indicating that the campaign against our right to know what's in our food is recognizing that even a million dollars a day of advertising isn't enough to bring them to victory. Shame on these companies that are labeling their food honestly in 61 other countries but are spending millions to oppose our right to know here in California.

many of the figures above are not current. For example, Pepsi is over $2 mill now. this shows only $429K.
