    Yes, the US produces several strains of GMO corn. One is resistant to certain insects, another can resist a deadly weed killing agent, and others are used in pharmaceutical products. There was controversy over the spread of North American GMO corn over the border and into Mexico. Mexico has many corn fields, and cross pollination may be responsible for spreading the GMO seeds. The Mexican government was uncertain it wanted GMO corn grown and sold from their fields, but the US fought back saying that GMO foods are harmless. Those strains made for pharmaceuticals could be harmful to Mexico’s harvests if they spread as well.
