"Mass production of GM insects in factories, using antibiotics as an additive in their feed, could lead to drug resistance in bacteria, leading to the spread of superbugs as billions of insects are released into the environment in future" warned Dr Helen Wallace, GeneWatch UK's Director, "This important risk to human health has been ignored by regulators, despite bans on the use of antibiotics in animal feed in many countries".
