GM labeling debate goes to Germany: WWF demands action on GM soy

Although genetically modified food is banned in Germany, nearly all the eggs, chicken and pork produced here is based on GM soya products – and is not labelled as such, the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) said on Tuesday. “Genetic engineering in meat, eggs, or cheese is landing on our plates and we don’t know it,” warned WWF consultant Birgit Wilhelm. “Until now, food that comes from animals that have been fed with genetically modified feed does not have to be labelled.” That is exactly what the WWF is now calling for – mandatory labelling on all animal-based products which contain GM components.
