Dow tackles US GM maize incident

Dow AgroSciences has recalled certain genetically modified maize seed lots in the US following the discovery of low levels of an unapproved GM maize line in commercial seed that was planted in 2006 and 2007. The unapproved line, event 32 or E-32, was found in three of Dow's insect-resistant Herculex RW and Herculex XTRA Rootworm Protection products. E-32 produces proteins that are identical to the registered Herculex lines and there are no health or environmental concerns, conclude the USDA, the EPA and the US Food and Drug Administration.
