PARMA, Italy – An unidentified group of protesters forced their way onto the premises of the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA). The group is protesting EFSA's handling of assessing applications for genetically modified products in the European Union.

In a statement, the agency said: "EFSA respects the right of citizens to protest peacefully and express their opinions about EFSA’s work. However, EFSA deplores the method chosen by the protestors to convey their views on this occasion.

"EFSA is proud of its record of engagement with stakeholders and pressure groups, including those that hold strong views about EFSA’s work. The Authority devotes a large proportion of its resources to ensuring that all voices are heard and will continue to do so in the future."
