Alfalfa crop may be contaminated by genetically modified traits

  • Monsanto (MON) is under investigation after samples of alfalfa tested positive for genetically-modified traits in Washington state, according to reports yesterday.
  • If confirmed, it would be the second known case of GMO contamination in a major U.S. crop since May, when university scientists confirmed the presence of a banned GM wheat growing in a farmer's field in Oregon.
  • The suspected outbreak comes in the run-up to a ballot measure in the state that would require mandatory labeling of all GMO foods.
