Our law firm has started investigating claims on behalf of farmers that purchased GMO corn seeds made by Syngenta. Farmers may have been misled by Syngenta to believe that the GMO seeds they were growing were approved for import into China, the third largest corn export market at the time, when in fact they were only approved for us in the US.
In 2010, Syngenta commercialized corn seeds with a genetically modified trait, known as “MIR162,” that gives the plants increased resistance to certain insects. In 2011, the company began marketing this trait under the brand name Viptera. A recent lawsuit filed against the company by farmers alleges that misleading statements by the company led them to believe that approval for the Chinese market was imminent, when in fact the GMO corn still has not been approved to this day, four years later. As a result, these farmers may have suffered significant financial losses due to the allegedly misleading statements made by Syngenta.
Additionally, lawsuits against the company allege that Syngenta marketed a program which led to farmers commingling their Viptera GMO corn with non-GMO corn, leading to losses stemming from their now contaminated non-GMO corn as well.
Our law firm believes that farmers that purchased GMO corn seeds manufactured by Syngenta may be able to collect compensation from the company. Lawsuits filed against the company allege that Syngenta’s misleading statements about Viptera may have cost the U.S. corn market somewhere between $1 billion and $3 billion, and may have been responsible for reducing US exports of corn to China by 85%.
