EFSA clearance for MON88302 oilseed rape

The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has given safety clearance to Monsanto’s genetically modified glyphosate herbicide-tolerant MON88302 oilseed rape. The company’s application for EU approval covers import, processing and use in food and feed. Monsanto already has cultivation approvals in the US and Canada, under the TruFlex trade name, and food-use approvals in Japan, Mexico and Australasia (Agrow No 683, p 25). The EFSA’s assessment concluded that MON88302 was as safe as its conventional counterpart and non-GM commercial oilseed rape varieties. Its opinion goes forward to the European Commission for consideration.
