French Ministers wary of EFSA clearance to MON810

French Ministers have stressed that the decision by EU Environment Ministers to reject a bid by the European Commission to force Hungary and Austria to lift their bans on EU-approved genetically modified maize lines should be respected. The decision was reached in March ( Agrow No563, p 9). The French Minster of Ecology and Sustainable Development, Jean-Louis Borloo, and the Minister of Agriculture, Bruno Le Maire, were reacting to the European Food Safety Authority’s (EFSA) clearance for Monsanto’s application to renew the EU approval of its GM insect-resistant MON810 maize ( Agrow No 571, p 13).
