Iceland urges lobby

ICELAND, the frozen food retailer, has urged the public to lobby supermarkets and MPs for the segregation of modified crops so that products can be guaranteed as unmodified.

It makes the appeal in an advertisement in newspapers which claims consumers are being treated as "guinea pigs".

It says people are eating such products without knowing it, even though the long-term effects are unknown.

About 500 people marched to a MAFF/NIAB site in Devon to protest against the growing of genetically modified maize.
