Survey of Tortilla Chips and Taco Shells for Genetically Modified Ingredients

Thursday, 11 May 2000

This survey was published in May 2000.

The Food  Safety  Authority  of  Ireland  (FSAI)  has  completed  a  survey  to determine  the  levels  of  genetically  modified  (GM)  maize  ingredients  in  tortilla chips and taco shells on sale in Ireland.  The results confirm the findings of an earlier  preliminary  survey  that  detected  GM  ingredients  in  a  range  of  different foods.  This is the first in a series of surveys planned by the FSAI to determine the  level  of  GM  contents  in  different  foods  and  to  ensure  that  labelling regulations are adhered to.
