EU threatens Poland with lawsuits, fines over GMO ban

Poland continues to defy the European Commission’s law on genetically modified products by banning the entry of GMO goods into the country. It has only 20 days to respond to EC’s accusation that the country’s laws violate EC regulations. The continued ban may result in fines of as much as $381,407 (260,000 euro) a day. A ruling by the EU court that Poland violated the law will also expose Warsaw to lawsuits GMO trading firms may file against the Polish government.
