According to Natural News, a food activist organization has filed suit against the U.S. Department of Agriculture, alleging that one of its agencies is in violation of Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) provisions after failing to provide requested documents.
The Center for Food Safety, in its suit against the USDA’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service, or APHIS, said the agency has ignored FOIA requests for records related to genetically engineered crops by unlawfully delaying responses and withholding public disclosure of information.
As reported by Sustainable Pulse, the suit charges that APHIS has failed to provide timely responses to at least 29 separate FOIA requests or appeals. In addition, the suit claims that of those cases, the agency has failed to provide a final response to ten requests and two appeals.
The suit is asking the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia to order APHIS to promptly provide the center with requested information and to further order the agency to end its practice of failing to respond in a timely manner to future FOIA requests for GMO-related data.

No doubt, this will go down in history as one of the most NEFARIOUS instances of collusion between big business and a U.S. regulatory agency, ever. The USDA, responsible for developing and executing policy to protect farming, forestry and food, has time and time again colluded with Monsanto, the evil biotechnology company that inserts bacterial pesticide genes into American crops, and has created a monopoly of business that interferes with the USDA doing their job properly, ethically, and with sound mind and intention.
One of the most powerful and wealthy corporations in the world, Monsanto, is genetically manipulating and dangerously modifying all of the staple crops in America, including corn, soy, wheat, alfalfa, sugar beets, cotton and canola, by infiltrating, bribing and coercing the very regulatory agency representatives who are supposed to represent the American people and keep the food and environment safe, productive and sustainable.
