EFSA Releases Scientific Opinion on Four-Event Stack GM MaizeMarch 16, 2022
The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) Panel on Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO Panel) has published their Scientific Opinion on the safety of four-event stack genetically modified (GM) maize DP4114 × MON 810 × MIR604 × NK603 and its subcombinations independently of their origin.
The scientific opinion for glufosinate and glyphosate herbicides-tolerant and insect-resistant maize is published based on the application EFSA‐GMO‐NL‐2018‐150 under Regulation (EC) No. 1829/2003 from Pioneer Hi-Bred International, Inc. The scope of the application is for import, processing, and food and feed uses within the European Union (EU) of maize DP4114 × MON 810 × MIR604 × NK603 and all its subcombinations independently of their origin and does not include cultivation in the EU.
The GMO Panel has previously assessed the four single maize events and one of the subcombinations and did not identify safety concerns. No new data on the single events or the assessed combination were identified that could lead to modification of the original conclusions on their safety. The GMO Panel concludes that the four‐event stack maize and its subcombinations are as safe as the comparator and the selected non-GM reference varieties with respect to potential effects on human and animal health and the environment.
