No more carte blanche for genetically-modified organisms in Lazio they may no longer be cultivated in the region (apart from in greenhouses and for research purposes). Restaurant owners and anyone else selling foodstuffs containing GMOs must clearly label them as such, mark them with an asterisk (as in frozen foods) and store them in separate compartments so as to avoid any confusion with GM-free products. Fines will range from 5,000 to 50,000 for the illegal cultivation of GMOs, and from 2,500 to 15,000 for restaurant owners who fail to label foodstuffs containing GMOs properly. This is an appropriate response to the need for consumer protection and peace of mind, said Daniela Valentini, regional agriculture secretary.
