Brussels rejects GMO segregation but supports mandatory labelling

The European Commission has rejected the principle that foods, seeds and animal feeds containing genetically modified organisms (GMOs) should be segregated throughout their production chain in order to allow them to be labelled as "containing" or "not containing" GMOs. But it has agreed that products which cannot be guaranteed to be GMO-free will have to bear labels stating that they "contain" or "may contain" GMOs, and criteria for testing products to detect GMOs will be drawn up to help avoid widespread use of the "may contain" label.
