The U.S. Department of Agriculture declared safe for human consumption Friday an experimental variety of genetically engineered rice found to have contaminated the U.S. rice supply this summer.

The move by the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service to deregulate the special long-grain rice, LL601, was seen as a legal boon to its creator, Bayer CropScience, of Research Triangle Park, N.C. The company applied for approval shortly after the widespread contamination was disclosed in August. It faces a class-action lawsuit filed by hundreds of farmers in Arkansas and Missouri.


Have we yet to see the real political battle over GM foods in the US and Canada?
