The Department of the Environment said this afternoon they are satisfied that GM seeds have not come into Ireland and the Environmental Protection Agency has been asked to confirm this. The statement follows a new alert in Britain over genetically modified food after an agricultural supplier admitted it had mistakenly sold GM seeds with its normal products. Advanta Seeds UK have admitted that some of its conventional rapeseed sold and sown in the EU and the UK, over the past two years, actually contained GM rapeseed.
