Chipotle says it has completed phasing out genetically modified ingredients from its food. The Denver-based chain had already been using mostly non-GMO ingredients, but said in late 2013 it was working on transitioning to a tortilla that did not use them.

The head of the Food and Drug Administration’s food safety center has said the agency found no basis that GMOs pose any different safety concerns than foods developed by traditional plant breeding. Chipotle Co-CEO Steve Ells has said the company felt it was best not to use GMOs given the ‘lack of consensus’ about their effects.
