Government Agencies Announce that Genetically Engineered Cottonseed Has Contaminated Food System

Contamination Occurs as USDA Finalizes Weaker Biotechnology Rules

WASHINGTON—The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), Food and Drug Administration, and the Environmental Protection Agency announced today that an experimental variety of genetically engineered cottonseed developed by Monsanto has entered the U.S. food system illegally. According to the agencies, Monsanto harvested the unapproved cottonseed in error and allowed it to mix with approved animal feed that food animals have already eaten. (For the agencies' press release go to: http://www.aphis.usda.gov/newsroom/content/2008/12/ifruit.shtml).

This discovery occurs just as the USDA works to finalize rules that would substantially weaken biotechnology oversight before the Bush administration leaves office.
Developed by Monsanto. Of course Monsanto harvested the unapproved cottonseed in "error".
And if you believe that one......................

  1. but... Monsanto wants to feed the world! End hunger and starvation! Really they do - you can read all about it on their website!!

    Sarcasm aside - I doubt anything that Monsanto does is by 'accident'. They have already destroyed all land race corn varieties, almost all land race rice, almost all land race soy and cotton, not to mention the compromised canola strains in Canada.

    They threaten farmers worldwide, have zero interest in what is 'best' for communities or the health of society.

    Bottom line is profit. End of rant.
