SYNGENTA sells two genetically modified corn varieties, Viptera and Duracade, that are approved in the United States, but until December 2014, the products had not been approved for export to China. In 2013, China tested a U.S. corn shipment and found that the shipment contained traces of MIR 162 (the trait found in Viptera and Duracade). China immediately began rejecting corn shipments from the United States.
Anyone in the corn industry who has sustained indirect or direct losses as a result of Viptera and Duracade are eligible to make a SYNGENTA corn claim or file a Viptera lawsuit.
