+ - EU Ministers backing GMO Food. Allowing Nation States Approve or Deny.

think_nix (1467471) writes "As reported from EU Parliament with a controversial follow up at rt . The EU Parliament is paving way for EU Nation States to decide on banning or allowing GMO grown foods within their respective territories. A further article at der Spiegel (German) (google translate) quotes the German Health Minister if countries cannot specifically scientifically argument the ban, this would allow GMO companies to initiate legal actions against the banning ruling states. Furthermore it was noted, given EU Parliaments current stance on not reintroducing border and customs controls between member states, this will make checks and controls of GMO foods between member states even more difficult. Also noting that the recently passed EU consumer food label law has no mention of GMO foods."
