Genetically modified wheat developed by Monsanto Co., and never approved by federal regulators, has been found growing in a Washington state farm field, the U.S. Department of Agriculture said on Friday.

.

The discovery of 22 unapproved genetically modified wheat plants has prompted an investigation by federal and state agencies. Its the third such discovery in three years.

.

A farmer found the GMO wheat in a field that has not been planted since 2015. The plants had been identified as being one of Monsantos experimental varieties a few weeks ago, a spokesman from the Washington State Department of Agriculture said.

.

The USDA is testing grain harvested from the farmers other wheat fields as a precaution, the agency said. Officials also reached out to at least one trade group earlier this week, and alerted importers on Thursday.

.

The grain has not been traced in commercial supplies, USDA said in a statement.

.

There are currently no commercially approved genetically modified wheat varieties and incidences of rogue plants are rare. The first case was in 2013 in Oregon, which prompted buyers including South Korea and Japan to stop buying U.S. wheat. More unapproved wheat was found in Montana in 2014.

.

The Food and Drug Administration believes there is no threat to the food supply due to the small number of plants found and based on what is known about the GMO variety.
