NotesNews: "Ministers kept the accidental planting of GM crops across Britain secret even from their own advisers, the Independent on Sunday has learnt. Some official bodies heard news of the sowing of contaminated oil seed rape at 600 British farms only when it was broadcast on the radio last week. ... The Government learnt on 17 April that the contaminated seed, imported from Canada by the Dutch-owned company Advanta, had been accidentally sown over more than 22,000 acres of Britain last year and over a further 11,750 acres this spring. Last year's crop will have entered the food chain in cooking oil, margarine, ice cream, chocolate and through being fed to farm animals. " Independent on Sunday
