European Parliaments Environment Committee on GMO food and feed regulation

Last week the EPs committee on Environment and Consumer Protection voted on nearly 600 amendments regarding two proposed EU regulations on GMOs:1. Regulation on traceability of GMOs, GM food, feed (COM(2002) 182),2. Regulation on genetically modified food and feed (COM(2001) 425).The Committee demands labeling of all GMO products, including animal products derived from GMO feeding, and a maximum threshold for labelling GMOs in food at 0,5%. It rejected any exemptions for unauthorised GMOs. The plenary of the EP will vote on the proposal in its July session.</p><p><a href="http://www.zs-l.de/gmo/downloads/ep_vote_foodfeed.pdf">Full debriefing on the Committees vote</a>
