SEATTLE, Jun 06, 2013 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Two Eastern Washington State farms that grow soft white wheat have filed a class action lawsuit today in Spokane federal court against Monsanto. The lawsuit, the first class action against Monsanto over its release of unauthorized genetically engineered wheat, was filed on behalf of all domestic soft white wheat farmers. More than 46% of U.S. soft white wheat comes from Washington state.

Hausfeld LLP has an active environmental tort litigation practice and its attorneys previously served as co-lead counsel representing corn farmers in a national class action against the manufacturer of genetically-modified StarLink corn, which resulted in $110 million settlement.

Nearly 90 percent of the Pacific Northwest's soft white wheat crop is exported to Asian nations, where it is used to make noodles and crackers.

EU recommends testing of US wheat after Japan finds GM grains, blocks imports

Scientists Unswayed by Monsanto Findings on Rogue Wheat

Several plant scientists questioned conclusions Monsanto Co. (MON) (MON) drew from its investigation of an escaped gene-altered wheat variety and said there is still a risk that rogue grain is in the seed supply.

Monsanto said that it has since tested 31,200 seed samples in Oregon and Washington and found no evidence of contamination.

“We don’t know where in the whole chain it is,” said Carol Mallory-Smith, the weed science professor at Oregon State University (85070MF) who tested the initial wheat plants and determined they were a genetic variety Monsanto had tested. “I don’t know how Monsanto can declare anything. We obviously had these plants in the field.”

The U.S. Department of Agriculture is investigating how the wheat showed up eight years after the company ended field tests. It was found growing on about 1 percent of the farmer’s 125-acre (51-hectare) field, and he submitted it to Oregon State for testing after an application of Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide didn’t kill it.

All of the tested seeds were either destroyed or recovered and sent to a USDA facility in Colorado for storage, the company said. Because these Roundup-resistant plants existed on only one of two of the farmer’s fields and haven’t popped up in other farms since 2005, the occurrence is either “inadvertent or purposeful mixing of seed,” Fraley said.

It’s that jump that independent scientists question.

“Sure they tested it, but that doesn’t mean it’s all clean,” David Andow, a professor of entomology at the University of Minnesota, said in an interview. “It just means it’s not so widespread that it could be detected easily.” [link to www.bloomberg.com]
