What was the Biosafety Protocol of 2000?

    The Biosafety Protocol of 2000 was agreed upon in Montreal.  It resulted in a somewhat successful treaty which allowed (but did not require) products developed from biotech organisms to be labled as “may contain genetically modified ingredients.”  Countries were also allowed to turn away any products from other countries if there was reasonable doubt of the safety of the product.  While this marked some progress in the battle between advocates for consumer rights and biotech companies, the treaty still leaves some things to be desired.  For instance, although those foods could be labeled as containing g-m products, once those products are processed into other foods consumers wouldn’t know.
