EFSA clears Monsanto's GM soybeans

The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has given safety clearance to Monsanto's genetically modified glyphosate-tolerant MON 89788 soybean line. The line is being developed worldwide under the Roundup Ready 2 Yield brand name. Monsanto is seeking EU approval for import, processing and use of the soybean line in food and feed. EFSA clearance is a stage in the EU registration process and the application will go forward for consideration by the European Commission's GMO regulatory committee. Roundup Ready 2 Yield soybeans have already gained approvals in the US, Canada, Japan, the Philippines and Taiwan, and Monsanto plans an initial limited introduction in the US in 2009 ( Agrow No 537, p 22).
