EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT REJECTS NATIONAL GMO BANS PROPOSAL – 28 OCTOBERBrussels Daily
A draft EU law that would enable any EU member state to restrict or prohibit the sale and use of EU-approved GMO food or feed on its territory was rejected by the European Parliament on Wednesday. Members are concerned that the law might prove unworkable or that it could lead to the reintroduction of border checks between pro- and anti-GMO countries. They call on the Commission to table a new proposal.
