US identifies GM (genetically modified) rice

US authorities have confirmed the presence of low levels of an unauthorised line of genetically modified rice in BASF's non-GM Clearfield CL131 rice. Initial testing pointed to one of Bayer CropScience's glufosinate-tolerant LibertyLink events but the exact identity was unknown (Agrow No 516, p 11). The USDA's Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) has now confirmed the identity of the material as Bayer's LLRICE604.
