EFSA completes safety review of MON88913 cotton
The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has concluded that there are no safety concerns related to the import and food/feed use of Monsanto’s genetically modified glyphosate-tolerant Roundup Ready Flex cotton (MON88913). The assessment followed additional bioinformatic data submitted by the company. Last year, the EFSA was unable to complete its assessment of Monsanto’s application for EU approval due to insufficient data (Agrow No 670, p 17). The GM line has been cultivated in the US since 2006.
