USDA personnel have been investigating the incident, as well as searching for other GM plants which could have outcrossed into the wild, for almost three months, but APHIS had little new information to report on Monday. The Agency did reveal that no GM wheat has been detected in commercial supplies, and that no other plants have been found growing wild.
