Mexico revokes Monsanto’s permit to market GMO soy in seven states

The permit revocation applies to the states of Tamaulipas, San Luis Potosi, Veracruz, Chiapas, Campeche, Yucatan and Quintana Roo.

Monsanto has lost its permit to commercialize genetically modified (GMO) soy in seven Mexican states, Reuters reported.

Mexico’s agriculture sanitation authority SENASICA revoked the permit – a decision that the St. Louis-based seed giant called unjustified.

Citing a SENASICA document, Mexican newspaper Reforma reported that the permit was revoked after authorities detected Monsanto’s GMO soy in unauthorized areas.
