The Environmental Protection Agency has proposed an action plan that would for the first time ever, require a new biotech crop to be labeled as a pesticide, according to the Competitive Enterprise Institute.


In approving the new plum variety, which has been bioengineered to resist virus infection, EPA proposes to regulate trees, cuttings and fruit from virus-resistant plants under federal pesticide laws and label them as containing a "plant incorporated protectant."
