New "Starlink" contamimation found in Japan

One year after the recall of a genetically engineered corn variety "Starlink" of Aventis (now Bayer) has been completed in the US and growing of that GMO is banned there, Japanese authorities have stopped a cargo of US corn on Dec 26th as it was contaminated with the illegal GMO.

The US Department of Agriculture said is was unable to identify the sources of the contamination so far.</p><p><a href="http://www.planetark.org/dailynewsstory.cfm/newsid/19243/story.htm">Reuters on Starlink 30 Dec 02</a>
