The UK Government has said it is planning a public consultation in the autumn with a view to altering legislation so that gene-edited foods are treated the same way as natural foods. Despite evidence that gene editing could introduce new toxins and allergens into our foods, the legislation change would mean no safety checking and no labelling, taking away our choice about whether to eat these risky foods.

The briefing will be hosted by the Alliance for Food Purity.
