EU nations agree to ban suspect U.S. corn gluten imports

BRUSSELS, Belgium, April 15, 2005, Associated Press via European Union nations voted today to ban U.S. shipments of suspect corn gluten animal feed unless it has full assurance that the imports are free of an unauthorized genetically modified corn.

The move could affect millions of dollars' worth of corn gluten exports. The dispute centers on a batch of Bt10 corn that Swiss agrochemicals compan Syngenta AG inadvertently sold in the United States and exported to Europe without approval.
