The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) is making available for public comment a petition from Nuseed Americas Inc. (Nuseed) seeking deregulation of a canola variety genetically engineered (GE) to convert oleic acid to docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). DHA is an omega-3 fatty acid that supports brain development and protects neurological function. Nuseed’s DHA canola accumulates a substantially higher concentration of DHA in the seed oil compared to other conventional canola varieties. DHA has a long history of safe consumption in food and feed. The petition will be available for public review and comment for 60 days starting December 11, 2017.

Comments may be submitted from December 11, 2017 – February 9, 2018.
