Tempers are flaring in Europe this week as hundreds of farmers in England, France, Germany, and Sweden have found out that they unwittingly planted genetically modified (GM) rapeseed oil crops, after a seed company accidentally included a small amount of GM seeds in bags sold to the farmers over the past two years. Many Europeans are adamantly opposed to GM foods; hence, the uproar. Enviro groups say the mistake shows the need for a complete ban on GM plants, and they are calling for the contaminated fields to be destroyed and restitution paid by the seed company, Advanta. The British government is being accused of a cover-up because the agriculture minister knew about the seed mix-up a month ago but didn’t make the information public. On Wednesday, Prince Charles spoke out against GM technology in a BBC Radio address.
