John Robbins with quotes like the following: "Is That So? ”’Monsanto should not have to vouchsafe the safety of biotech food. Our interest is inselling as much of it as possible. Assuring its safety is the FDA’s job.’ –Phil Angell,Monsanto’s Director of Corporate Communications, New York Times
"’Ultimately, it is the food producer who is responsible for assuringsafety.’ –FDA Federal Register, Statement of Policy, Foods Derived from New PlantVarieties.’"
