Bayer Admits GMO Contamination is Out of Control
Greenpeace International, Dec 8, 2009
Straight to the Source


EXTRACT: Bayer has admitted it has been unable to control the spread of its genetically-engineered organisms despite 'the best practices [to stop contamination]'(1). It shows that all outdoors field trials or commercial growing of GE crops must be stopped before our crops are irreversibly contaminated.

$2 million US dollar verdict against Bayer confirms company's liability for an uncontrollable technology

Greenpeace welcomes the United States federal jury ruling on 4 December 2009 that Bayer CropScience LP must pay $2 million US dollars to two Missouri farmers after their rice crop was contaminated with an experimental variety of rice that the company was testing in 2006.

This verdict confirms that the responsibility for the consequences of GE (genetic engineering) contamination rests with the company that releases GE crops.

Bayer has admitted it has been unable to control the spread of its genetically-engineered organisms despite 'the best practices [to stop contamination]'(1). It shows that all outdoors field trials or commercial growing of GE crops must be stopped before our crops are irreversibly contaminated.

A report prepared for Greenpeace International concluded that the total costs incurred throughout the world as a result of the contamination are estimated to range from $741 million to $1.285 billion US dollars.(2) The verdict indicates that Bayer is liable for what could turn out to be a large proportion of these costs, as it awards damages in the first two of more than 1,000 currently pending lawsuits. The decision must be used to support all claims for losses incurred by other US farmers whose crops have suffered from GE contamination.

Lawsuits from Monsanto PostMon Dec 14, 2009 12:51 pm  Reply with quote  

Monsanto is guilty of the same things and they sue farmers and who ever they can for saving and planting their own seeds. When are people going to start suing them? I grow Hopi blue corn and Tennessee Burly. I don't want my crops contaminated with this crap. Where is the FDA and Consumer Protection? Or should I be asking who's pocket are they in? The Amish and Pennsylvania Dutch have been targeted here by who? The farmer that was baited illegally to sell milk? The man refused and gave the milk to the officer. All the other actions taken against the communities of these 2 groups by law enforcement officials. The proof is there that our legal system is corrupt and for sale. And you have no representation at all but all kinds of taxation.
