As quoted in the paper campaigner Eve Mitchell comments: "This is a solution without a problem, and the price could be very high indeed when unknown genetically modified organisms are let loose in the food chain. Rather than ignoring EU food safety laws to help the US soy industry cut costs, we should simply buy the stuff from countries that segregate their GM properly. If it hasn't been tested, why eat it?"
