GE corn StarLink was found in 99% of the quarantined farm goods imported into South Korea during 2000, according to a report published by the Korea Food and Drug Administration (KFDA). Developed by Aventis CropScience and grown in the US, the corn has not been approved for human consumption because of concerns over a potential allergic reaction in consumers. Authorities in the US and around the world have spent much energy however recalling and quarantining products containing the corn, which had been distributed or imported illegally.
