APHIS indicated the presence of GE material in non-GE rice
Independent testing by the Arkansas Rice Board in January indicated the presence of genetically engineered (GE) in non-GE Clearfield 131 (CL131) rice. As a result, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) conducted its own CL131 testing, which detected trace levels of LLRICE62 in CL131 2004 headrow seed, according to an APHIS statement released late yesterday. The tests were conducted as part of an ongoing investigation into the release of regulated LLRICE601 in commercial long-grain rice. Since LLRICE62 was deregulated by APHIS in 1999, this rice line is not the focus of the APHIS investigation. APHIS conducted the testing to determine which GE rice variety, if any, was present in CL131. The positive sample was pulled from 2004 headrow seed — an early step in the plant breeding process — and not from foundation seed.
A full investigation continues, in order to determine the circumstances surrounding the release of LLRICE601 and whether any USDA regulations were violated. LLRICE62 is a rice variety engineered by Bayer to be tolerant to herbicides marketed under the brand name LibertyLink (as were LLRICE601 and LLRICE06).
