 Japan's Health Ministry says a cargo of corn for food use awaiting
shipment to Japan
  from the U.S. contains StarLink corn. The news comes just one
after Japanís Ag
  Ministry said it had agreed to the U.S. plan for testing corn to be
shipped to Japan for
 animal feed to ensure it doesnít contain StarLink.

  The sample containing StarLink was among five that had tested
in the United
 States but were sent to Japan for a second check under an agreed
procedure between
  the two countries.
