South Korea Halts Sale of Canadian Wheat

Grain containing a genetically modified trait survived herbicide spraying

Wheat 3241114 960 720

South Korea has suspended the sale of wheat and flour from Canada after the North American nation announced last week the discovery in mid-2017 of an unapproved genetically modified trait in Alberta province, reports Reuters.

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency said on June 14 the grain containing a genetically modified trait, developed by Monsanto Co to tolerate its Roundup weed-killer, was found after it survived herbicide spraying.

Following the announcement of the GMO wheat discovery, Japan’s farm ministry last week suspended its tenders and sales of wheat from Canada.
