China rejected two shipments — almost 546,000 tons — of U.S. dried distillers’ grain, a corn byproduct, because it contained genetically modified material, state media reported Friday.

China’s top food-quality watchdog rejected the two shipments because they contained MIR162, a special insect-resistant variety of maize developed by Syngenta, a Swiss maker of seeds and pesticides.

The first shipment, 545,000 tons, was rejected last week in Shanghai, state media said. The second shipment, 758 tons, was rejected Monday.

MIR162 is not on the Chinese government’s short list of approved grains considered genetically modified organisms, or GMO.
