EuroCommerce calls for strict purity criteria for GM contamination of seeds

The EU Commission and the Member States are currently discussing within the Standing Committee on Seeds the proposal for a Directive regarding the adventitious presence of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) in seeds. EuroCommerce, the European trade representation of the Retail, Wholesale and International Trade, is concerned that the proposed thresholds for seed lots will lead to growing contamination of the whole of the food and feed supply chain and therefore will considerably reduce the freedom of choice available to consumers between GM and non-GM food.</p><p><a href="http://www.eurocommerce.be/index.jsp?ptp=tDetail.jsp&pci=952&pti=88&psk=01">EuroCommerce press release</a>
