Some Governments Suspend Wheat Imports From U.S. After GE Crops Discovered In Oregon

May 31, 2013: 12:00 AM EST
After the U.S. Department of Agriculture revealed that some genetically engineered wheat had been found growing in a field in Oregon, Japan and South Korea suspended some imports. The GE wheat had not been approved for sale, USDA said, nor was any of it found in grain shipments. South Korea said the suspension would stay in place until further tests were done on wheat imports from the U.S. The European Union, which has a “zero tolerance” policy on GE crops, urged that its 27 member states test wheat shipments from the U.S.
