The EU Commission authorises ten genetically modified crops for use as food and animal feed

The European Commission has authorized seven genetically modified (GM)
crops (3 maize, 2soybeans, 1 oilseed rape, and 1cotton) and renewed the
authorizations for two maize and one oilseed rape used for food
andanimal feed. The announcement was made on the European Union's Daily
News published on August 17, 2021.

All of the 10 GM crops have gone through a comprehensive and stringent
authorization procedure, including a favorable scientific assessment
conducted by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA). The
authorization decisions do not cover cultivation. Member States did not
reach a qualified majority either in favor or against at the Standing
Committee and at the subsequent Appeal Committee, therefore the European
Commission has the legal duty to proceed in line with the scientific
advice received. The authorizations are valid for 10 years, and any
product produced from these GMOs will be subject to the EU's strict
labeling and traceability rules.
