The French government Monday said it has asked the European Commission to suspend the authorization to grow genetically modified corn crops.

Since February 2008, the use of U.S. agricultural-biotech company Monsanto Co.'s (MON) MON 810 corn variety has been banned by the French government on the grounds of health and environmental risks.

At the end of November 2011, the Conseil d'Etat administrative court ordered the ban be lifted, ruling on a case brought by Monsanto and other companies opposing the French Agriculture Ministry's ban on MON 810 corn.

At the time, the Conseil d'Etat said the decision came following a ruling from the European Union Court of Justice, which determined governments of individual member states are only allowed to impose such unilateral bans if they can prove there is an emergency and there is a "high risk threatening human or animal health or the environment in a manifest way."
