This “Consumers all across the country have woken up to the fact that we’ve become an unregulated feeding experiment by the biotech industry.” is sloppy reporting. Any reporter covering this topic should be well aware that the US government regulates GM crops under not 1, but 3 different agencies (FDA, EPA, APHIS). I can understand a lobbist making the statment. What I can’t understand is a reporter accepting it at face value, or worse repeating it without pointing out the error.
