STARLINK CORN FIASCO FINALLY PAYS OUT

Four years ago traces of an illegal, likely allergenic genetically engineered corn (Starlink) began showing up in taco shells and other food products in the U.S. Hundreds of U.S. consumers reported serious allergic reactions food products likely contaminated with StarLink corn.

A billion dollar recall of food products ensued, and farmers whose fields were contaminated by the drifting Starlink pollen incurred massive financial losses. In June of 2004, a class action lawsuit against Aventis, the producer of Starlink corn, came to a close with a settlement of $112 million to affected farmers (amounting to only about $1-2 per contaminated acre). The disaster is a dramatic example of how genetically engineered crops can go awry.

STARLINK POLLUTION
"In Iowa, StarLink corn represented 1 percent of the total crop, only 1 percent. It has tainted 50 percent of the harvest."
