China rejects 887,000 T U.S. corn due to GMOs since Nov -customs

BEIJING, Feb 28 (Reuters) - China blocked the entry of 887,000 tonnes of U.S. corn between November last year and Feb. 24 because the shipments included a genetically-modified strain that has not been approved, Xinhua quoted a quarantine official as saying on Friday.

China has rejected shipments since November because they contained MIR 162 corn, a GMO strain developed by Syngenta AG that is not approved for import by China. (Reporting by Paul Carsten, editing by David Evans)
