Swedish agriculture and food co-operative shuts feed line after GM rapemeal found

Lantmannen highlighted the severity of the European Union's opposition to genetically modified foods by revealing that it had closed down feed production capacity after the discovery of biotech rapeseed meal. The Swedish agriculture and food co-operative said that it was taking action against the, unnamed, supplier of the rapeseed meal, after routine internal tests discovered ”traces” of genetically modified material. ”The raw material comes from a reputable supplier that guarantees GM-free product,” Lantmannen said.
