FSANZ invites submissions on food made from GM corn

Food Standards Australia New Zealand (FSANZ) has called for submissions on an application to permit food from a genetically modified corn line.

The corn has been modified to be tolerant to two herbicides. FSANZ Acting Chief Executive Officer Peter May said FSANZ has conducted a thorough safety assessment and has identified no potential health and safety concerns.

“Based on data provided and other available information, food derived from this corn is considered to be as safe for human consumption as food derived from conventional corn,” he said.

Submissions are invited from government agencies, public health professionals, industry and the community. The closing date is 22 March 2016.
