McDonald’s bans GM-fed beef
By FWi staff
FAST FOOD giant McDonalds is to ban meat reared on genetically modified beef for its burgers, reports the Daily Mail.
The US-owned company said it will ask suppliers to find non-GM feed sources, in response to fears about the safety of GM foods.
Already the company gets much of its chicken from non-GM sources.
