Letter to Health Canada asking for rescinding the authorization of the genetically engineered corn Smart Stax

Publication - July 28, 2009
We are writing to request that Health Canada immediately demand that the Canadian Food Inspection Agency rescind its authorization of the genetically engineered (GE) eight-trait corn called ‘SmartStax’ (Monsanto and Dow AgroSciences) and that Health Canada initiate a full food safety assessment of the GE corn as set out by the Codex Alimentarius Guideline for the Conduct of Food Safety Assessment of Foods Derived from Recombinant-DNA Plants.
