Joe McDonald: China Seeks Probe of Greenpeace Rice Claim

From AP, via Newsday.com:

China has ordered an investigation into an environmental group’s claims that genetically modified rice not approved for human consumption has been sold in central China for two years, an official said Thursday.

Greenpeace on Wednesday called for a recall of the rice and released what it said were results of lab tests of rice from seed companies, farmers and rice millers in Hubei province.

“We have started an investigation of the Greenpeace report,” said an official contacted by phone at the Agriculture Ministry’s office for genetically modified organisms.
