Report identifies possible holes in government transgenic crop oversight

(Friday, April 25, 2003 -- CropChoice news) -- The report, "Post-Market Oversight of Biotech Foods: Is the System Prepared?", finds that post-market oversight of transgenic food products is neglected by the federal govenrment. This could be a potential problem in the future with the onset of pharmaceutical crops. The StarLink corn episode and the ProdiGene's pharm corn contamination illustrate the importance of post-market oversight.
