Env MEPs slam GM food/feed proposals

Members of the European Parliament’s Environment Committee have slammed European Commission proposals to allow member states to decide on whether to ban the use of EU-approved genetically modified food and feed. Representatives of all political parties were unanimous in their condemnation of the proposals, with a key criticism being that they would be impractical to implement and control within the EU single market. One MEP accused the Commission of giving up on the difficult GMO issue and “passing the buck” for decision-making and legal risk to member states. This view was not mollified by EU Health Commission Vytenis Andriukaitis stating on several occasions during the debate that member states would be responsible for the consequences of the actions they take on GM products.
