Mobile Rice

A story in the New Standard points to the discovery of Liberty Link, a genetically modified variety of rice produced by Bayer CropScience, in Mexican markets. Like most GMO crops, Liberty Link rice is designed to be compatible with a trademarked pesticide (in this case Bayer's Liberty Link pesticide).

Some may remember that this GM rice variety was approved by the USDA for consumption, but only 3 months AFTER it had already been found in the food supply. The article says that Liberty Link does not appear to have been approved buy Mexico (the author could find no record of it being approved and Greenpeace has stated that it has not been).
