The Non-Starlink settlement deadline is fast approaching…once again. Farmers in Iowa and nationwide have until tomorrow — Thursday — to file claims in the settlement of the StarLink corn lawsuit. Three years ago when growers produced the corn with a gene to kill crop-eating pests, it was supposed to be strictly limited: used for animal feed, but never to get into the human food supply. Then it turned up in taco shells, and tests found other products on store shelves with the DNA of Starlink corn. Farmers who DIDN’T grow the genetically-altered corn sued, saying their prices suffered because of the uproar that followed the discovery, and got a $110 Million settlement agreed to by makers and distributors of Starlink including its parent company Avanta USA. The original May 31st claims deadline was extended to July 31st.
