FDA Releases Brands of Tortillas, Shells, Tostadas, and Chips Affected by "StarLink" Corn Recall

Sandston, VA (SafetyAlerts) - The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) today released a list of tortillas, shells, tostadas, and chips recalled because these products appear to contain Bacillus thuringiensis subspecies tolworthi Cry9C protein, and the genetic material necessary for its production in corn (trade name: StarLink) - a pesticide which is not allowed for use in foods for human consumption.

This is the first public notice of this Class II recall issued by FDA.
