Western Australia denounces GM crops

The state government of Western Australia has called for an “immediate halt” to federal approvals of genetically modified crops until “more is known about the safety of eating them”. The comments come from state Premier Alan Carpenter, who wants Food Standards Australia New Zealand to base its decisions on “independent scientific trials” rather than relying on “the say-so of the GM [crop] companies”. He also wants greater monitoring and enforcement of GM food labelling.
