National Organic Standard - Zero Tolerance for GM contamination to go?

Excerpt from an email by Gene Ethics:-

 

National Organic Standard - Zero Tolerance for GM contamination to go?
Please submit your comments to: info@oiscc.org by May 7, 2015


Hello All,
Public comment is open till May 7th (or maybe 14th) on application 5 (c) to amend Section 3.3 of the National Organic Standards - Genetic Modification: http://www.oiscc.org/current-submissions-under-review.html

Australian Certified Organic (ACO) has applied on the Organic Industry Standards and Certification Council (OISCC) which sets organic standards) to amend the standard. They propose to allow GM contamination without decertification of the place, to avoid future cases like Marsh vs Baxter. But ACO asks the organic industry to bear all responsibility for the impacts of inevitable GM contamination, gutting the GM-free standard and betraying its customers.

All the best for good eating to continue,
