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.
