Food Labelling

FOOD LABELLING

Senator SIEWERT (Western Australia) (4.30 pm)—I, and also on behalf of Senator Xenophon, move:
That the Senate—
(a) notes reports in Australia that found infant formula had been contaminated with genetically modified (GM) soy and corn;
(b) acknowledges the significant level of community concern about food labelling and safety issues in Australian food products, particularly those being fed to infants and young children; and
(c) calls on the Australian Government to introduce clear and effective labelling standards that ensure all GM additives in Australian food products are labelled.

Question negatived.
