Crops rejected for containing traces of GMOsListen /
Up to 26 countries around the world have blocked the import of a range of non-GMO crops because they were found to contain traces of Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs).
The Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) said shipments of supposedly non-GMO grain, cereal and other crops have been blocked, destroyed or sent back to the country of origin after testing revealed the low-level traces.
The incidents have led to trade disruptions between countries.
Sandra Ferrari has been speaking to Sarah Cahill a Food Safety Officer for FAO.
She explained what is behind the rejection of non-GMO crops.
