Abstract

The Scientific Panel on Genetically Modified Organisms of the European Food Safety Authority (EFSAGMO Panel) has evaluated the overall safety of genetically modified (GM) carnation SHD-27531-4 cutflowers to be imported into the European Union (EU) for ornamental use. The genetic modificationresults in the flowers having purple petals. The stability of the new colour trait was observed overmultiple vegetative generations. The purple colour of the petals comes from the altered expressionlevels of anthocyanins, common pigments found in edible fruits and vegetables. Considering theintended use of the GM carnation and the possible routes of exposure, the EFSA GMO Panel did notfind indications that the genetic modification will increase the risk of allergy among those coming intocontact with carnations. Overall there are no reasons for safety concerns of carnation SHD-27351-4for humans. The EFSA GMO Panel also considered whether viable seed or pollen from GM carnationcut flowers could be dispersed into the environment and whether GM carnation can be propagated byrooting. Owing to the limited environmental exposure and the biology of the plant, the EFSA GMOPanel did not identify any environmental safety concerns and agrees with the scope of the postmarketenvironmental monitoring plan. The EFSA GMO Panel concludes that the import, distributionand retailing of the GM carnation will not cause adverse effects on human health or the environment.
