Genetic engineering, or GE, is a new technology where organisms have been engineered to become genetically modified plants, animals, or fungi, but it has been outlawed by California in recent years.
The state has been trying to ban GE products since its introduction in 2003.
The ban has been backed by consumer groups and environmental groups, who claim that GE is dangerous, and have argued that it is likely to cause serious health risks for the public.
The lawsuit filed Wednesday claims that California’s GMO labeling law violates the First Amendment, and is an unreasonable and unconstitutional attempt to “limit the rights of individuals to freely express their beliefs and opinions.”
The suit also seeks to overturn the California Supreme Court’s ruling in June that overturned the state’s ban.
California, along with 19 other states, has enacted the GMO labeling legislation, which requires companies to disclose genetically modified ingredients on products that contain ingredients that contain them.
The measure also allows the labeling of products with ingredients that have been genetically modified by companies that have received government authorization to do so.
The suit was filed on behalf of the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine, a nonprofit that works to protect the public from harmful genetic engineering.
California’s labeling law does not require companies to notify consumers if their food contains GMOs.
Instead, companies must disclose the ingredient list on a package or label in their advertising.
The state also requires the label to include a disclaimer that reads, “GMOs have not been approved for human consumption.”
The lawsuit seeks a declaration that the California labeling law is “an unreasonable and invalid regulation of speech” that “imposes substantial harm on free speech rights.”
California does not have a GMO labeling requirement in the state, but the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has said that it will review the labeling law if it comes to the agency’s attention.
