EU about to approve genetically engineered maize with potential health risk

The European Union Agriculture Council will on March 17 2011 deal with a market application of a so called 'stacked event' for MON 89034 × MON 88017 maize (Monsanto). Another new application for cotton GHB614 (Bayer) is on the agenda as well as renewal of application for maize 1507 (Pioneer). Testbiotech urges these applications be rejected, because necessary standards for assessing health risks are not met and recent publications show the need for further investigations.
