Government GM advisors will today [Wednesday] review disputed safety claims surrounding the first GM crop to be approved for commercial sale. FOE is calling on the government to ban the GM crop from the UK. ACRE (the Advisory Committee on Releases to the Environment) and ACAF (the Advisory Committee on Animal Feedingstuffs) are holding a unique public Open Hearing to consider disputed scientific evidence used to allow GM maize, owned by Aventis, to be given permission to be commercially grown in the UK.
