EU Rejects France’s Ban on Monsanto’s GM Corn

Europe’s food safety agency on Monday rejected France’s temporary ban on a strain of Monsanto’s genetically modified maize.

The EU food safety body, the European Food Safety Authority, found that “there is no specific scientific evidence, in terms of risk to human and animal health or the environment” to support a ban.

In March France had imposed a new temporary ban on Monsanto’s MON810 maize citing “significant risks for the environment.”
