EU agriculture ministers pummel GMO opt-out plan

EU agriculture ministers called the European Commission’s proposal to allow each EU member state to regulate their own market concerning the use of genetically modified (GM) ingredients in human and animal food as incomplete, impractical, or unnecessary. There were many concerns that the deal would create more problems as opposed to solutions and that it could not work in practice without violating EU internal market rules.  Currently, genetically modified organisms (GMOs) can only be imported into the EU market if they have an EU-wide stamp approving their circulation in the internal market. The Eurpean Commission grants the permits based on a scientific assessment by the European Food Safety Authority (EfSA), and a vote by member states.
