It's a possibility. Considering what goes on in europe, burning, trespassing, etc. That being said, if it was going to occur in a plant species, wheat and barley would be the best ones for this to happen in, since they're inbreeding. I think Wheat is inbreeding. I KNOW Barley isn't.

It is hard to figure out how it got out. TFA says that it was in a "patch" so that means that the wheat seeds were not mixed in with the wheat seed that was used in the field, or individual plants would be distributed randomly in the field. I'd have to know the planting history of the field, but the most likely is that a single plant escaped, and was allowed to go to seed (because it was resistant to herbicide? Or missed by the combine?) and that formed the patch. Pretty good detective work on someone's part though, I guess that they sent in a sample because it appeared to be resistant.

Wheat can't spread on its own in the wild, so there's no danger here of it escaping or anything like that. There's still the question of how those seeds got the there. They didn't walk there by themselves. Someone likely put them there.

Woops, that naughty GMO wheat got away.  Oh, look you have our GMO wheat in your field, we will be seizing your property after we sue the crap out of you for unauthorized use of our patented wheat.  Sure this was an "accident."  Oh, and yes, it was sabotage, poor, poor Monsanto always being victimized.

That has never. NEVER. EVER. HAPPENED.

Jesus farking christ. That miscounting has run around the world more times than I care to count. Every time Monsanto has sued someone, 'Accidental' levels of contamination have run 90% or higher. You don't get accidental contamination like that unless you are ACTIVELY selecting.

I live in oregon and frequently find wheat growing on the banks of the Willamette river from falling off of boats (massive shipping vessels) during loading. So there's one way they can escape.

The farmer saw it growing where he didn't want it, so he sprayed it with Roundup. It survived. He reported that.
When I first heard that 1% of the wheat in that fallow field was resistant, I was impressed that they did some kind of testing -- then I realized that they probably simply paid the farmer to spray the whole field with Roundup. And that nearby fields were tested; so I suspect they paid the farmers for their crop and paid them to kill their crop. Sometimes there is a simple solution.

I know some people act like anybody who opposes GMO's or supports organic food is some tinfoil-hat wearing weirdo, or that there is no proof that GMOs can be harmful, or that it's all a big dihydrogen monoxide-type scare. . .

Let me share with you my little CSB about why I don't trust GMO's anymore and why my household has gone organic in its food.

My wife used to have one food allergy, just one.  She was allergic to nuts, most severely to almonds, but mildly allergic to most kinds of nuts (except peanuts, for some reason, probably because they are technically legumes and not nuts).

Well, two years ago, my wife suddenly went into anaphylactic shock.  We rushed her to the hospital, and the ER docs confirmed she had a major allergic reaction.  We had no idea to what.

A followup appointment at an allergist showed that she was now severely allergic to corn and soy, and also allergic to a lesser extent to oats, as well as her previously documented nut allergies.

Well, in case you didn't know, eating around a severe corn allergy SUCKS.  That means that anything with HFCS is right out (it's not indistinguishable from sugar, her body can sure as heck tell the difference), and between that and corn syrup, corn starch, "modified food starch" (made from corn starch), corn meal, and such that means pretty much all processed food is right out.  Also, corn-fed livestock retain enough corn proteins in the flesh to set off her allergies (to a lesser extent), so we have to buy grass fed beef (and basically skip all pork and chicken, since it's next to impossible to find non-corn-fed pork and chicken).

Since HFCS isn't allowed in organic foods, to avoid that in products we started to have to buy organic foods.  Then we accidentally bought some organic foods which contained her allergens in them.  Oddly enough, she can eat organic oats with no problems, and has a much, much lesser reaction to organic soy and a weaker reaction to organic corn.

There's some difference there, that her body can tell.  She eats a kernel of regular corn, she'll have to dive for the epi-pen in a couple of minutes.  She puts regular soy sauce on sushi, her tongue breaks out and swells up on contact.  If we use organic soy sauce (without GMOs), she can have it with pretty much no problem.  She can still eat organic oats without an issue.

We were at a loss for figuring out why this was so, until we found this study:  http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/8594427

Apparently Monsanto introduced genes from Brazil nuts into their GMO soybeans, and it's been confirmed that people with nut allergies will be allergic to GMO soy, which in case you didn't know is about 80% of the soybeans harvested in the US.  It hasn't been revealed yet, but we strongly suspect from what I've seen that the GMO corn Monsanto produces has some nut-related gene in it, or something that triggers on a nut allergy.

As for the oats, there is no approved GMO oats out there, but as the wheat incident has shown, it's possible that an old project could have slipped into the seed stock, creating a trace contamination, or there could be cross-contamination from some other GMO crop being processed at the same plant.

Is your wife also allergic to canola?

In any case, it's unlikely the GM factor is to blame for her allergies, as the processed foods (like HFCS and soy sauce) are purified of any GM substances, and without allergenic substances, no allergic reactions.

Also, you say she is also allergic to oats... There are no GM oats-- not even an early generation field trial-- so something else in the oats (and likely the corn and soy) is causing her distress.

I'm aware of the brazil nut trials. However, you should also know that due to this study, that caught this allergy in the testing stages, i.e. the non-commercial trial stages, they were ultimately shelved. Rather than saying that Monsanto et al. are bad, this actually suggests that the testing process is robust and does catch things.

In short, no commercially available soy product today contains the brazil nut gene you're talking about because they caught it in the testing stage. So your wife can't be allergic to it, because it doesn't exist in the soy she's eating.

In cases with grains like wheat, that's less the case. It's possible this was accidental admixture, or a plant. If this was corn, or Canola, I'd tell you the chances were good it wandered off. Grains tend to travel less far because they inbreed, rather than outcross.

You shout that my first statement is EXTREMELY UNLIKELY without giving any data, evidence or other rationale. You are the one who needs to provide a citation showing that novel allergens from GM crops have been shown present in processed foods. Since I cannot prove  a negative,  the onus for proof shift to you.
And,
If you bothered to go to the original literature instead of relying on a blog summary, you'd know that the GM oat you cite-- now almost ten years later-- was never commercialized, and not even grown outside in "an early generation field trial"-- exactly as I said.

Monsanto has bred Terminator seeds and released them in the wild and have affected millions of farmers and ruined their crops. Dont like that? Monsanto will sue you out of existence. THey have filled the entire government with their paid shills, the head of the FDA is also the head of Monsanto and they have shut down any free speach against them time and time again through their legal thugs. GMOs are untested and unregulated and Monsanto has paid off the government to ensure that remains. In europe and Zambia they are banned because its been proven to be near poison for the environment and people and is the sole cause of the near extinction of the bees. Monsanto should be shut down for crimes against humanity and all of the workers and scientists should be jailed and farmers who use their frankenseeds should be banned from farming entirely. The entire planet is near death and no matter where you look monsanto has a hand in killing it.

Wow, how scary!

But...wait a minute... didn't the Organic Industry lawsuit against Monsanto recently get summarily thrown out of court because the plaintiffs could not provide a single case of a farmer sued by Monsanto for incidental or trace presence of Monsanto's seeds?

Or did I misread it? I'm willing to be corrected... all you need do is give the citation to ANY US/Canadian court case where Monsanto (or any other company) successfully sued a farmer for inadvertent presence of GMOs.

Or, did Monsanto buy off all those judges, too?

We don't know about canola.  We never used it in cooking around here, I don't think it was one of the tests the allergist conducted.

I honestly don't know the biochemistry or genetics behind it, but I do know that when we eat organic, GMO-free foods even if it's an allergen for her, the reaction is reduced, to the point where she has almost no reaction to oats and can safely eat small amounts of organic soy products (so we can put a dash of organic soy sauce on sushi, or use it in a stir fry).  Corn is still a major allergen, the organic stuff just causes less of a reaction though.  However, since some common corn products like are not allowed in organic foods, organics are a quick way to find HFCS-free products.

I'm frankly amazed that she's sensitive enough to corn that even things that are highly processed still have enough of whatever protein it is that her body can detect it.  Bourbon whiskey, made from corn, she has a mild reaction to (she'll still sip it, she is a Kentuckian after all, but it's a rare thing for her.  HFCS/Corn Syrup, like poison to her, she eats something made with HFCS and she'll be breaking out in minutes.

Don't know why, but there is something different, that is omitted presumably, in those organic crops that is exacerbating her food allergies.  No clue why or what, but I know organics exclude GMOs, and the two things she's most allergic to are modified (soy and corn) and those modifications are very widespread in crops.  What I've seen is reason enough for us to buy the vast bulk of our foods as organic (and many of the ones we don't are minimally processed and usually locally grown, when you buy your meat from the man who raised the cows himself it's a lot easier to ensure the quality of your food).

Yeah, it's more expensive, but she hasn't had to go back to the ER since then.

I don't doubt that your wife is reacting to certain foodstuffs. But if she can detect even the minimal amount of corn in  Bourbon, I doubt it's a true IgE allergic reaction (this does not deny  her distress, only that it's technically called a food sensitivity, not an allergy. Her reaction to nuts remains a true allergic reaction, however).

Most modern medicines are made with GMOs, so if you're going to avoid GMOs, you might want to give them a miss, too (I still don't think GMOs are causing her reaction, but you're the ones who have to deal with it.)

Good luck

Sounds less GMO, and more grain-related (Not just the gluten) and you're onto something with your grass-fed options. If you are what you eat, then you are what you eat, eats.

And most soy is generally best avoided. Don't eat it. Especially if you're a dude.

We made a similar switch two years ago (no grains, very limited dairy, organic wherever possible... aka "Paleo") and all of my food allergies and other health issues went away.
