California voters rejected on Tuesday a proposal to force food companies to label products containing genetically modified (GM) ingredients, officials said, based on a majority of votes.

California rejected the so-called Prop 37 — which would have been a first for a US state — with 54 percent against and 46 percent in favor, the California Secretary of State’s website said, declaring the proposal rejected.
