The article reports that Syngenta Seeds has agreed to pay $1.5m, or €1.1m, penalty to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for selling and distributing seed corn that contained an unregistered genetically engineered pesticide called Bt10. While it had been concluded that Btl0 did not pose a threat to human health or the environment it is still illegal to distribute any pesticide not registered under the U.S. Federal Insecticide, Fungicide and Rodenticide Act.
