StarLink possibly appearing in Nebraska sweet corn and popcorn

(March 30, 2001 -- Cropchoice news) -- After food recalls, lawsuits and an ongoing effort by the U.S. Department of Agriculture to get rid of the stuff, StarLink is back. It's showing up in sweet corn and popcorn in Nebraska, according to an official with the Nebraska Crop Improvement Association.

The transgenic corn, a product of Aventis CropScience, first appeared in taco shells and corn chips last year, even though it had approval only for livestock consumption.
