Monsanto admits it broke the GM testing rules in Tasmania

(February 28, 2001 --Cropchoice news) -- Monsanto admitted that it broke Australia's guidelines for conducting trials on genetically engineered crops.

The Australian government found that Monsanto and Aventis, the maker of the StarLink transgenic corn that contaminated much of the U.S. corn supply, didn't adequately clean up 11 Tasmanian sites on which they performed trials on genetically modified canola.

The Tasmanian state government is examining its legal options.
