Last month, a field of genetically modified wheat was discovered in Oregon; since then, several lawsuits have been filed against Monsanto, the seed company responsible for growing the wheat. The most recent suit was filed on June 25.
This latest claim was brought by Kansas wheat farmer Dan Brown; he sued Monsanto on behalf of himself and potentially thousands of other growers; he is seeking to gain class-action status. His is at least the third lawsuit filed against Monsanto this month over the release of the experimental, genetically modified wheat. Another Kansas farmer has already sued the company individually, while a different lawsuit, also seeking class-action status, was filed in Washington on behalf of growers of soft white wheat.
Monsanto has said that none of the genetically modified wheat entered the commercial market, so none of these cases should have legal standing.
