Detection of CDC Triffid Flax/Linseed (Event FP967)

The EU Rapid Alert System for Food and Feed (RASFF) has reported finding an unapproved genetically modified flax/linseed variety in cereal and bakery products in over 30 countries.

The GM flax variety, FP967 (CDC Triffid), is not authorised for food or feed use in the EU, meaning that any food product or flax/linseed derivative analysed to be positive for FP967 is not marketable in the EU and zero tolerance applies.

Genetic ID offers a construct-specific method for detection of FP967. The testing method is accredited and fully validated and is now available at Genetic ID (Europe) and Genetic ID (North America) for all flax/linseed products.
