The European Parliament today [Wednesday] voted in favour of stricter labelling for genetically modified foods. In a move likely to further upset the US, the European Parliament voted that GM derivatives in products such as sugars and oils must be indicated on food packaging, and that the current rule that only food with 1% of GM material must be labelled is too lax. The new rules will require labelling for all products containing more than 0.5% of GM organisms.
