SEOUL, KOREA - A shipment of wheat and wheat flour from the U.S. state of Oregon has been found to contain genetically modified varieties. Most of the cargo has been delivered to Korea's major flour mills, including CJ Foods, Daehan Flour Mills, Samyang Milmax, DongA One, Samhwa Flour Mills, Korea Flour Mills, and Daesun Flour Mills.
The Ministry of Food and Drug Safety said on May 31 it has visited all seven food processors on the 30th and secured samples for further test. It also said it has dispatched inspectors to two small-sized trading firms that import flour from Oregon. The genetic test results on the suspected samples will be available next week.
Earlier, the food and drug regulator had set out an inspection on all recent shipments of wheat and wheat flour imported from the United States upon receiving notifications from U.S. authorities.
