China’s Grain Crop GM Contaminated- Says Greenpeace

Posted by w_thames_the_d on July 21, 2010


Lorena Luo, a food and agriculture specialist with non-governmental environmental organization Greenpeace, said its monitors found three distinct GM-positive rice samples produced in 2007 by two grain processing companies in the Hubei capital of Wuhan.

“In April, we bought three rice samples weighing 1,200 grams in Wuhan – all of which has been tested as GM at a qualified lab in Hong Kong,” Luo told reporters on Tuesday.

The test results indicated the rice was developed from one of the two strains of pest-resistant GM rice, which was cultivated by the Wuhan-based Huazhong Agricultural University and was issued with bio-safety certificates by the Ministry of Agriculture last August.
