Abstract

In this review, which focuses exclusively on food/feed safety aspects of GM lines, we first summarize the regulatory and risk perception context for GM food marketing in the EU. Many European citizens remain unconvinced by the safety of GM food despite the fact that a thorough, lengthy, and costly evaluation of GMOs is imposed before marketing. This context has prompted new studies by public research laboratories, using alternative evaluation techniques (i.e., not part of the regular evaluation process), namely large scale profiling of GM varieties and long-term animal feeding studies, whose conclusions are discussed here.
