The European Commission authorized 5 genetically modified (GM) crops for
food and feed. These include two new varieties of maize (MON
87427xMON89034xNK603 and 1507x59122xMON810xNK603), and renewal of 3 existing
authorizations for maize (2) and sugarbeet (DAS-59122-7, GA21, and H7-1,

According to the Commission, each of the authorized GM crops were evaluated
by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA), which released favorable
opinions about the safety of the GM crops. The authorizations are valid for
10 years, and are subject to EU's strict labeling and traceability rules,
which include proper labeling of products stating "genetically modified" or
"produced from genetically modified organism." However, if the product has
less than 0.9% of GM ingredients, or if the addition of the GM is
adventitious or technically unavoidable, such labeling is not required.
