EDIBLE oil industry body SEA on Thursday demanded the Centre to exempt soyabean oil from declaration as genetically modified (GM) food on the label of the packaged product, saying the oil does not have traces of GM despite being crushed from GM soyabean. The Union Consumer Affairs Ministry has asked State Govts to enforce Legal Metrology (Packaged Commodities) Rules.
