Can organic food contain genetically modified (GM) elements?


The EU has revised the organic regulations and will actually allow food with up to 0.9% GM contamination to be sold as organic and not labelled as GM. That could mean almost one in a hundred mouthfuls of organic food could be genetically modified. However, Organic Farmers & Growers is standing by the 0.1% level (the lowest detectable in current science) and enforcing that with its licensees. If GM trace is found OF&G will withdraw organic certification from that product.
