British saying no to GM foods

Some of the biggest sellers of food in Britain say they are taking further steps to remove genetically modified products from their shelves.

The Tesco supermarket chain says it will no longer sell meat from animals that have been raised on GM feeds.

Other stores say they are eliminating GM produce from fresh meat, fish, fruit and vegetables.

Tesco said it was responding to its customers' mistrust of GM foods.

A BBC business correspondent says the growing resistance to GM foods in western Europe is hurting farmers in the United States, who've seen some of their exports slump in recent years.
