Title Interview with ABC radio re FSANZ review of gene technology definition Degree of recognition Regional Media name/outlet ABC Media type Radio Duration/Length/Size 7 mins 17 seconds Country/Territory Australia Date 10/12/19 Description FSANZ announced that the definitions of 'food produced using gene technology' and 'gene technology' are no longer fit for purpose following the development of 'new breeding techniques'. These definitions currently trigger a pre-market safety assessment. They will now prepare a proposal to revise the definitions and to determine what foods/technologies require the safety review going forward.
Dr Heather Bray spoke with Tyne Logan on ABC Great Southern's Breakfast program to discuss what this means for food producers and consumers.
