AGRI Committee prepares its opinion on Novel Foods
The European Parliament Committee on Agriculture and Rural Development met to discuss the draft opinion on novel foods.. John Stuart Agnew said that the last time this was discussed, he mentioned bushmeat. The document said that this should meet the same standards, but he noted that this is not as easy as stated, as this meat is brought in by illicit means. He said that these animals can contain Ebola and are eaten without proper regulation. He said that this should be taken as seriously as discussions on GMOs.
