France pushes to ban Monsanto’s GMO corn across the entire EU

1998 MON 810 is approved for experimental plantings in Europe. Over the years Austria, Hungary, Greece, France, Luxembourg, Bulgaria, France and Germany all ban MON 810. 2008: France bans MON 810 based on environmental concerns. September 2011: The European Court of Justice tells France it can’t act alone unless it can prove “a potentially serious risk to human or animal health or the environment”. November 2011: France’s Conseil d’Etat orders the French ban lifted. President Nicolas Sarkozy says he will seek new legal means to keep the ban in place. January 2012: France says it won’t allow the corn to be grown this year, despite the court ruling. Monsanto says it “considers that favorable conditions for the sale of the MON810 in France in 2012 and beyond are not in place.” This week: France pushes for European-wide ban.
