More EU indecision on GMO import approvals

EU member states have failed to reach the qualified majority vote required to accept or reject European Commission proposals to approve the import of genetically modified crops. The applications under consideration are all for Monsanto cotton lines. They include approval of import, processing and use in food and feed for insect-resistant Genuity Bollgard II (MON15985) and renewing approval for food additives, feed and feed additives produced from the line.  Other applications are for the renewal of glyphosate herbicide-tolerant and insect-resistant Bollgard Roundup Ready (MON531 x MON1445), and approval for cottonseed oil produced from the line. Two further applications are for the renewal of the separate MON531 and MON1445 lines.
