The Consumers' Association has criticised the House of Lords for rejecting EC proposals to label GM derivatives in food products. The Lords Select Committee on the European Union condemned Brussels' proposals, Labelling and Tracing of GM Food and Animal Feed, as unworkable. CA principal policy adviser Sue Davies said: "We do not agree the proposals are unworkable and believe it is essential to move towards labelling based on traceability. "The Commission's proposals would allow consumers to see whether GM derivatives are used." She said current labelling laws required only ingredients that were detectable in the end product to be disclosed on the label. {{NEWS }}
