A Florida Genetically Engineered Food Label Amendment did not make the November 6, 2012 ballot in the state of Florida as an initiated constitutional amendment. If enacted this measure would have required that all foods that are Genetically Engineered and sold or distributed in or from Florida be labelled as such. This measure excluded food that is prepared, served or sold in restaurants for immediate human consumption from the requirements. The amendment was introduced by Floridians For Health Rights on May 12, 2000.[1]
