This Friday, May 10, 2013 photo shows genetically engineered potatoes growing in rows inside a J.R. Simplot greehouse in southwestern Idaho. Simplot is seeking U.S. regulatory approval to market the potatoes _ which resist browning and are designed to produce lower levels of a natural but potentially cancer-causing acrylamide when fried _ to growers and, eventually, consumers.
