Biotech Corn Story Clarification
Nov. 09, 2000
LONDON (AP) _ In a Nov. 5 story about genetically engineered corn products, The Associated Press described Monsanto GA21 and Dekalb DBT418 as banned in Britain.
The products are not specifically banned, but their sale is not authorized in Britain because they have not received approval from the European Union. Applications for approval of the two products are pending with the European Union, according to Monsanto.
