Would any like to talk about the Revolving Door policy between Monsanto and posts in the Obama administration, along with Monsanto's connections to the EPA and FDA? I would love for someone to rationalize THAT.

A:Expert Answer

We’ve received several questions about the careers of a few people who formerly worked at Monsanto, but were later hired for government positions.  It is true, just as it is true that the government has hired people from many other companies and NGOs (non-governmental organizations) from across our industry. 

 

Please take a look at my previous response to a similar question, as well as my colleague John Cordt’s response to a similar question: http://gmoanswers.com/ask/are-any-monsanto-employess-also-now-or-ever-worked-fdaand-would-be-conflict
