Well done everybody - we did it.
MEPs have voted for full traceability and labelling of GM foods and feeds.
We have got traceability but it was very close - 244 votes to 238. (FOE Austria changed 7 conservatives this week - this made the difference)
Unauthorised GMO's was rejected
The threshold is now 0.5% with a clause to review it and lower it.
GMO-free label rejected
animal products eg milk - we lost this by 3 votes - 258 to 255
