China has recently slowed its process for allowing imports of certain types of GMO corn and rejected millions of dollars worth of U.S. * GMO crop developers and other backers say many scientific studies show the crops are safe, and the USDA promotes the crops as a means to enhancing global food security. The last import approval for a GMO grain was granted in June 2013, said Matthew O'Mara, director of international affairs at the Biotechnology Industry Organization, an industry group.
