Syngenta Lawsuits Being Investigated by Wright & Schulte LLC, Following China’s Rejection of Corn Shipments Tainted with Unapproved GMO Seed

Columbus, OH (PRWEB) November 23, 2014

Syngenta lawsuits are now being investigated by Wright & Schulte LLC on behalf of farmers and agribusinesses that have allegedly incurred significant financial damages due to Syngenta, Inc.’s attempts to commercialize Agrisure Viptera and Agrisure Duracade, genetically modified (GMO) corn seed products that have not been approved for sale in China. According to a report from Bloomberg News, Syngenta’s actions have caused China to virtually ban U.S. corn imports. Because China is the third-largest American corn importer, Syngenta GMO lawsuit plaintiffs claim prices have crashed, costing farmers and agribusinesses more than $1 billion.

According to a report that appeared in The Wall Street Journal on September 12th, Agrisure Viptura, also known as MIR 162, was developed by Syngenta to produce a protein that makes plants pest resistant. While the company applied to Chinese regulators for approval of the GMO seed, the product has not been cleared for sale in that country. Since November 2013, China's government has rejected more than one million metric tons of corn destined for Chinese buyers, and prices have plunged more than 60% from their 2012 peak.

Over the past several months, Syngenta GMO corn seed lawsuits have begun to mount in courts around the country. Most recently, a group of farmers filed a class action lawsuit in U.S. District Court, Northern District of Illinois, alleging that because Syngenta’s GMO seed varieties constitute 3 percent of U.S.-planted acreage, there’s no way to ensure that corn for export won’t contain trace quantities. The complaint seeks to benefit anyone in the U.S. who grew, harvested or sold non-modified corn in the past year. (Case No. 14-cv-8556)

Cargill, Inc. and Trans Coastal Supply Co. each filed Syngenta lawsuits over the company’s handling of Agrisure Viptura. Trans Coastal, which filed its complaint in the U.S. District Court, Central District of Illinois on September 16th , alleges that Syngenta’s actions could ultimately cost it as much as $141 million. (Case No. 2:14-cv-02221-CSB-DGB) Cargill, which filed suit in Louisiana’s 40th Judicial District Court on September 12th, claims the commercialization of the GMO seed has exposed it to $90 million in losses. (Case No. 60671)
Court records indicate that these cases are among nearly a dozen Syngenta GMO corn seed lawsuits now pending in U.S. courts. Plaintiffs in these claims have petitioned the U.S. Judicial Panel on Multidistict Litigation to consolidate all federally-filed claims involving similar allegations in a single court for coordinated pretrial proceedings. The Panel is scheduled to hear oral arguments on the matter on December 4th. (In Re: Syngenta AG MIR 162 Corn Litigation – MDL No. 2591)
