The National Biosafety Authority has seized various food products and feed containing Genetically Modified Organisms from Food Lovers and Spar which were being sold without permits from the Authority.

Some of the confiscated products were imported into the country ‘illegally’.

The Authority pounced on the unsuspecting chain supermarkets at East Park and Arcades Shopping malls on Tuesday afternoon for selling products containing genetically modified organisms which have not been assessed for their safety as food and feed, thereby contravening provisions of the Biosafety Act No 10 of 2007.
