Farmers Cooperative Elevator Company Zero Tolerance Policy
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the U.S. Grain Standards Act allow ZERO TOLERANCE for treated seed occurring in grain.
FCE wants to remind you to thoroughly clean all equipment that comes in contact with treated seed. Be sure to check and recheck to make sure it’s clean. One kernel of treated seed, whether it is corn, soybeans, or wheat, can contaminate an entire bin and can cost FCE millions of dollars. If you are checked and have treated kernels, by law, you may have to pay for the grain quantity that was tainted.
