A committee of European Union Member State food experts postponed a decision last week on whether to force Italy to reverse a national ban of four genetically modified varieties of maize in food, EU Business reported recently. Italy had banned the foodstuffs earlier this year, claiming that they had been given an inaccurate classification of being 'substantially equivalent' to similar non-GM foodstuffs. The European Commission said in a statement tat the postponement gave the committee the opportunity to look at the Italian case 'in the context of the proposed strategy (on GM regulation) announced by Commissioners David Bryrne and Margot Wallstrom in July', which plans to see more labeling and traceablility in GM foodstuffs.
