(CBS News) SEAFORD, Dela. – The food industry is embroiled in a controversy over what critics call “Agent Orange corn.”

The genetically-modified vegetable is protected from a herbicide that kills so-called super-weeds, but is linked to the notorious “Agent Orange” used in Vietnam.

Many farmers are thrilled with the corn. But many critics think it will lead to more use of toxic chemicals.
