Consumer Rights Association claims Turkey imports illegal GMO products

The Consumer Rights Association (TDH) claimed yesterday that several different genetically modified organism products that jeopardize people’s health are being imported as the companies involved in 21 tons of seized GMO rice still deny the allegations. Turkey imported officially and legally goods like soya bean, soya oil, corn, cotton and rice worth more than $12 billion from producer countries between 2008 and 2012, said THD in a statement. Turkey imported $6 billion of these goods from the United States, one of the biggest GMO producers in the world.
