Why not let the market decide after providing all the information?
The California law was bad because it excluded foods represented by a number of powerful lobbying groups/lobbyists, including dairy, alcohol and restaurant foods.

I agree with Olli that it would contribute to mass hysteria, in a sense, without cause. As Olli also mentioned, virtually all plants and animals have been "genetically modified" at this point in history and the only real concern is potential (and very hypothetical) increased allergenicity. Just buy organic foods and don't worry about it.
