California Assembly Member Mike Gatto (D-Glendale) has introduced a bill (A.B. 14) that would require the labeling of food grown using recycled or treated water from oil and gas field activities.

“No one expects their lettuce to contain heavy chemicals from fracking wastewater,” Gatto said. “Studies show a high possibility that recycled oil field wastewater may still contain dangerous chemicals, even after treatment.”

The proposed label would state: “Produced using recycled or treated oilfield wastewater.” See Press Release of Assembly Member Mike Gatto, August 17, 2015.
