Regulatory status and information, October 2009:
This hybrid is currently (14.10.2009) not listed in the Biosafety Clearing House. agbios lists approvals as food and/or feed only from four Asian countries (Japan, Korea, Philippines and Taiwan), but states that hybrids of two GMOs do not need regulatory approval in the US, so it is safe to assume that this hybrid can be cultivated and consumed in the US.
