Another Starlink debacle?

September 20, 2006 | Roger McEowen


A federal class action complaint has been filed against Bayer CropScience and Aventis CropScience on the basis that the companies have financially damaged the multi-billion dollar U.S. rice industry by contaminating it with genetically engineered rice that is not approved for human consumption. The complaint seeks damages and an injunction. The case has similarities to the Starlink litigation that was settled in 2003. The case is Parson, et al. v. Bayer Cropscience, et al., No. 4-06-CV-01078 (E.D. Ark. Aug. 28, 2006).
