In late 2000, traces of Starlink, a variety of GM corn not approved for human consumption, were found in supermarket products in the US. No less than 143 million tons of corn were contaminated with Starlink, according to its creator, the Europe-based Aventis corporation. Seed companies, farmers, processors and food makers spent over $1 billion and six months trying to get rid of this unwanted GM corn.
