Washington Post Accuses EU of Pandering to Voters on Biotech Labeling Rules

Monday, August 6, 2001

A Washington Post editorial appearing Sunday criticized the European Union's recently proposed labeling rules for products of biotechnology as "the most burdensome in the world."
"If the technology posed unmanageable risks, this might be exusable. But Europe's policymakers are responding to irrational consumer fears. Rather than educate their voters, the continent's leaders have chosen to pander to them."
