EFSA (European Food Safety Authority) clears Herculex RW maize

The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has given safety clearance to Dow AgroSciences'/DuPont's genetically modified corn rootworm-resistant 59122 maize for import and use in food and animal feed. The maize, which is tolerant to Bayer CropScience's herbicide, glufosinate-ammonium, is sold as Herculex RW in the US. The clearance is a step in the EU registration process. The European Commission has three months to forward the EFSA's opinion, together with the Commission's proposed approval decision, to EU member states for a vote.
