Mmm, Genetically Modified Chocolate...

A few years ago there was a huge furore in the UK and throughout Europe about GM food. Greenpeace ripped up crops and supermarkets fell over themselves in trying to assure customers that they do not stock "frankenfoods". Even the EU got in on the act, making it incredibly hard for US companies like Monsanto to actually grow GM crops anywhere in Europe.

So you would think that these days, there are no products in the whole continent which contain GM ingredients, right? Wrong!

Tesco is selling a chocolate bar which contains GM soya, sugar and corn. The campaign group GM Freeze is trying to get Tesco to take the product off their shelves. You can find out about the campaign here.
