GM 1507/59122 maize cleared by EFSA

Dow AgroSciences/ DuPont's genetically modified insect-resistant and glufosinate-tolerant 1507x59122 maize has received safety clearance from the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA). The companies' application for EU approval for the maize line covers import, processing and use in food and feed. The EFSA opinion will go forward for consideration by the European Commission and EU member states. The two individual traits already hold EU authorisation for import and use in food and feed ( Agrow No 531, p 9). The combination of the 1507 line, which is sold as Herculex I, and 59122 (Herculex RW) is sold in the US as Herculex Xtra.
