Question:

Shalom, would you please explain briefly why genetically modified organisms (GMO) are kosher certified. From what I understand some GMO’s contain DNA, genes, from other species, such as DNA from and animal is injected into a plant. Thank you very much, Reuven.

Answer:

Unfortunately I am not very familiar with this subject, however I can refer you to the following link, where Horav Y. Belski zt”l does discuss this issue.
