This 2013 photo provided by the J.R. Simplot Co. shows a demonstration field of a new potato, genetically engineered to resist the pathogen that caused the Irish potato famine, at Michigan State University in East Lansing, Mich. In a letter Tuesday, Jan. 12, 2016 to Idaho-based J.R. Simplot Co., the Food and Drug Administration said the potato isn't substantially different in composition or safety from other products already on the market, and it doesn't raise any issues that would require the agency to do more stringent premarket vetting.( J.R.
