Monsanto sued by Kansas wheat farmer over release of unapproved GMO wheat in Oregon

Madison Ruppert
Activist Post

A wheat farmer in Kansas has filed a lawsuit against Monsanto alleging that the infamous agricultural giant is guilty of gross negligence for not containing unapproved genetically modified wheat which was recently discovered in Oregon.

The farmer, Ernest Barnes, said that Monsanto’s GMO wheat has put all of the United States’ wheat export sales at risk. Meanwhile, Monsanto claims they have no clue how the “Roundup Ready” strain of wheat ended up in an Oregon field since they say they abandoned their research in 2004.

Indeed, Barnes is quite right in saying that the discovery has already impacted U.S. wheat exports. Japan canceled part of a tender to buy U.S. western white wheat. Japan is one of the largest export markets for U.S. wheat.

South Korea also suspended imports of U.S. wheat and said they would increase inspections of imports.

The EU similarly said they will test incoming shipments and will block any shipments containing GMO wheat.

http://uk.news.yahoo.com/eu-test-u-w...100808757.html

“Monsanto has released GE (genetically engineered) wheat into the non-genetically modified wheat population,” Barnes’ petition states.

The “plaintiff has been harmed by any and all Monsanto GE wheat because it has impacted wheat exports and the price of wheat,” the petition adds, according to Reuters.

http://news.yahoo.com/kansas-wheat-f...155201442.html

The unfortunate reality is that the scale of the spread of Monsanto’s unapproved GMO wheat is not quite known at this point.


Reuters points out that it is not even known if it “has contaminated food supplies” leading to multiple countries backing away from purchasing U.S. wheat.

While the lawsuit does not state a specific claim for damages, it does say that the amount in dispute exceeds $75,000.

Barnes seeks damages to be determined at trial, according to the Associated Press. However, AP notes that Warren Burns, one of Barnes’ attorneys, said that the scope of damages is potentially in the hundreds of millions of dollars.

http://www.usatoday.com/story/money/...wheat/2388957/

While the U.S. Department of Agriculture claims that Oregon wheat is safe to eat and that there is no evidence showing that the GMO wheat entered the marketplace, entire countries apparently aren’t willing to take their word for it.

“These types of suits serve the purpose of helping police the agricultural system we have in place and make sure farmers are protected,” Burns told AP.

While Barnes’ lawsuit is believed to be the first in response to the discovery, his attorney said that
similar suits are in the works, according to AP.

The cases may be consolidated to make the process of discovery easier. Discovery involves obtaining, investigating and sharing evidence among parties.

As expected, Monsanto has been critical of the lawsuit.

“Tractor-chasing lawyers have prematurely filed suit without any evidence of fault and in advance of the crop’s harvest,” David Snively, Monsanto executive vice president and general counsel, said.

Monsanto claims that they followed a “government-directed, rigorous, well-documented and audited” process of closing out their GMO wheat program.

They pointed out that on average wheat seed is only viable for one or two years in the soil. One must wonder then, where did the contamination come from if the program was so rigorously closed out some nine years ago?

Monsanto claims that they are not to be held liable for the contaminated crop because they took so much care to prevent contamination.

“Given the care undertaken, no legal liability exists and the company will present a vigorous defense,” Monsanto said in a statement

Obviously the contamination still happened so it’s unclear just how much care was actually taken.

The case has been assigned to U.S. District Judge Monti Belot of the U.S. District Court in Wichita, Kansas.

Burns said that he thinks the lawsuit will remain in U.S. District Court in Kansas due to the “tremendous amount of harm [that] has fallen on Kansas and Kansas farms.”

“We view it as very important to maintaining farmers and maintaining the way of life they lead which is very important not only to this country but countries around the world to which we export,” Burns said.

“It is hard to underestimate the importance of the American wheat crop in sustaining people around the globe,” Burns added, according to AP.

If the unapproved GMO wheat is found to be more widespread than the initial discovery in Oregon, the U.S. wheat exports estimated to be worth around $9 billion this year could be put at even greater risk.

Fish is absoutely correct in his assessment of GMO products and I agree with everything he has written.

The lawsuit in this case has merit in that if Monsanto's practices impacted the sale of exports and thus the price of the farmer's product, then he has a case. The viability of GMO's is moot.

I'll back the science behind GMOs, but it's difficult for me to defend Monsanto's business practices. They have a rather sordid reputation within the industry as having lax business ethics. And this is from someone in the industry (me). If my company behaved like they do, I'd have a real hard time coming to work.

Well I dislike monopolies as well, and I'm not even a fan of Monsanto in the slightest. But by shunning GMO crops, you're shunning a lot more than just the greedy seed manufacturer. Monsanto can burn in an AIDS fire. But agricultural biotech as an industry is a very important part of the future. That's all I'm trying to defend.

How do you know they are truly organic? Are you sure they are using only OMRI approved products?

Safe? Depends on what one means. I think if one really knows nutrition and how the body really processes food to stay healthy, that these are not really good for people. I think people should know what they're getting, then let the market have its say. That would be the people.

Whatever numbskull. It is a legitimate question. How are you positive you are receiving a truly organic product? Only real legitimate certification of organic products comes from OMRI. Many products claim to be organic and aren't. Many products claim to be organic, but maybe are but haven't been OMRI certified.

Based on your fluffy statement I highly doubt you know what you are eating though.

Genetic engineering involves taking genes from various species of plants and animals, putting them into gene guns, and blasting millions of genes into a plate of millions of cells, and then cloning the result into a plant.

This can cause hundreds or thousands of mutations up and down the DNA chain. Genes can be switched off, switched on permanently, or change their levels of expression – at random.

Quote:
“A Noble laureate said years ago that we should not mistake selective breeding with genetic engineering, because genetic engineering basically creates new organisms overnight that don’t have the benefit of the billions of years of evolution.

Even FDA scientists said in a memo that it is the opinion of the technical experts at the agency that genetic engineering is different, and leads to different risks from traditional breeding.”
Quote:
Even the FDAs own scientists have stated that GMOs can lead to allergies, nutritional problems, the creation of toxins and new diseases and should require long term safety studies.

But they too were simply ignored....

They came to this conclusion and issued this recommendation based on scientific evidence, not on individuals who are trying to deny or hide the fact that problems exist.

The AAEM is the same organization that identified the Gulf War syndrome, chemical sensitivity and food allergies, and about a dozen other environmental health threats. They are on the frontlines, and the organization is designed to look for and investigate the sources causing health problems in the United States.

Quote:
Just last year the American Academy of Environmental Medicine (AAEM) reviewed the available research and issued a memorandum recommending that all doctors prescribe non-GMO diets to all patients because they are causally linked in animal feeding studies to:
•Infertility
•Immune system problems
•Gastrointestinal problems
•Organ damage
•Dysfunctional regulation of cholesterol and insulin
•Accelerated aging

I believe in eating as close as possible to the way nature made things. There's so many things in natural foods that man hasn't even isolated yet. The problem on this stuff is the companies making such things are doing their own testing, which is fine but there should be independent sources testing them too. Otherwise, these guys operate like the pharmaceutical companies do, who hide and cover-up some of their results in their testing. Just look at the lawsuits they were hit with where this came out. And the FDA has a revolving door with such companies. It's corrupt.

It's ironic when someone proudly says "I won't eat GMOs, those are dangerous. I only buy organic so I know exactly what I get." When the reality is that GMOs are tested and regulated 1000 times more than organic products.

Well they should be, since the hand of man altering nature is bigger in GMO. I think processed foods need to go too. BUT, not with any bans.They are also man-made, fake and devoid of life and health promoting qualities.

What the REAL problem is:

...the fascist set up. Especially note the FDA connection at the bottom.

Poor dumb gypsy woman..

Don't you remember previously trying to post bullshit by the clown Jeffrey Smith, only to be shown what a fraud he is? This isn't the first time..

Here's a quote from Academics Review, a website that reviews books for their scientific accuracy..

Quote:
Jeffrey Smith isn’t bound by the usual conventions. He once advocated getting thousands of people to collectively practice transcendental meditation – the yogic flying technique, to be precise, as he shows at left (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TM-Sidhi_program) – to reduce crime and increase “purity and harmony” in the “collective consciousness.” Here Smith can be seen demonstrating yogic flying at an Illinois news conference on Oct. 22, 1996, where he was promoting it for the Natural Law Party of Iowa.

Smith is now better known for his theories about biotech agriculture, or GM foods. His self-published books Seeds of Deception and Genetic Roulette have built for him an online profile that has made Smith one of the most widely quoted opponents of biotech ag —despite his evident lack of scientific credentials or other formal training on the subject. (He has had formal training in swing dancing, however, which he used to teach professionally.)

In addition, the “scientific studies” that Smith says support his theories are thoroughly contradicted by a vast body of data and scientific experience; they are wholly irresponsible. In his single-minded campaign against GM crops, Smith has shown an amazing capacity to ignore the scientific literature on almost every topic he discusses.


http://academicsreview.org/reviewed-...jeffrey-smith/
And your quote by the AAEM is also a joke. They are a fake organization, and even their accreditation board is fake.

Quote:
Quackwatch lists the American Academy of Environmental Medicine (AAEM) as a questionable organization, and its certifying board, the American Board of Environmental Medicine as a dubious certifying board.[4] They are not recognized by the American Board of Medical Specialties.

http://www.quackwatch.org/04Consumer...nonrecorg.html
This is an example of how easily misinformation bullshit can pile up when ignorant people don't research what they read.
