Food companies petitioned to ban new Monsanto GMO corn | MNN - Mother Nature Network
Hmmm--which is true? Yes, it is GMO corn, but will it be sold processed as critics suggest, or fresh, as Monsanto states?
A---"The coalition said the biotech corn would be used in canned and frozen foods as well as sold fresh, but will be indistinguishable to consumers from conventional corn because the U.S. government does not require genetically altered food products to be labeled."
B--"The safety and benefits of biotech sweet corn products — as well as other biotech crops — is well established," said Monsanto spokeswoman Danielle Stuart.
Stuart said the new sweet corn is a fresh-market product that will be sold on the ear, with or without husk, in the produce section of grocery stores."
