Considerations for the assessment of the safety of genetically modified animals used for human food or animal feed


Considerations for the assessment of the safety of genetically modified animals used for human food or animal feed



Livestock Production Science 74(3): 275-285

DOI: 10.1016/s0301-6226(02)00019-2

Genetically modified food and feed crops have entered the Western market, and genetically modified animals may follow in the near future. The issues that are commonly addressed in the assessment of the safety of genetically modified crops are discussed, as well as the analogous issues that may arise for genetically modified animals. For safety assessment, the degree of substantial equivalence of the novel food- or feed-organism to an appropriate counterpart should be established.
