China to launch inspection of GMO labels on cooking oils

China will launch a month-long inspection of labelling on cooking oils on Dec. 21, said a notice posted on Wednesday on the website of the State Administration for Market Regulation.

Inspectors will check production records against labels, punishing producers if the labelling is not accurate or fraudulent, it added.

The notice comes after local media reports about companies in southeastern Fujian province falsely labelling GMO soy oil as a non-GMO product.
