Two publicly-listed companies have been accused of selling genetically modified (GM) corn seeds. The accusations are based on the observation that no mice are attracted to large piles of the strain of corn stored in Shanxi and Jilin provinces and that sows fed the corn are alleged to have a reduced birth rate. The two main producers of the strain of corn known as 先玉335 (Xianyu 335) are Shandong Denghai Seeds Co Ltd and Gansu Dunhuang Seed Co., Ltd., both companies are involved in joint ventures with DuPont subsidiary Pioneer Hi-Bred International, Inc., the world's largest seed company.
