According to a report from Reuters, a European Commission official says food safety experts have failed to agree for the 10th time in a row over whether to allow imports of GA21, a genetically modified herbicide-resistant corn manufactured by Monsanto.



Eight countries voted in favor of authorizing the import, while five voted against. The votes were not enough for the proposal to pass.



The lack of a decision means ministers will have three months to debate the proposal. If they cannot agree, the Commission may adopt the proposal.
