New GE crop approval–comment by 7/11

The USDA released a Draft Environmental Assessment (EA) on the first-ever genetically engineered (GE), drought tolerant corn, MON 87460. APHIS is currently soliciting comments on this unprecedented GE crop, due July 11, 2011. Center for Food Safety’s analysis shows that USDA has not adequately accounted for the potential environmental and socio-economic impacts of this novel crop. As with previous GE crop approvals, USDA’s proposal fails to comply with national environmental law. COMMENT BY JULY 11, 2011
