Sugar Company Fights Subpoena

FARGO, N.D. (AP) -- Officials with American Crystal Sugar Co. say they should not have to testify in a lawsuit involving the sugar and corn syrup industries.

American Crystal is not part of the suit, but KFGO radio reports that the Moorhead, Minnesota-based company is being asked to provide information on genetically-modified sugar beets.

The complaint filed in California accuses corn syrup marketers of misleading consumers by claiming that sugar and high-fructose corn syrup are nutritionally the same.

Lawyers for American Crystal say the information wanted by corn syrup marketers is "confidential, irrelevant or obtainable from other sources."

A judge has not ruled on the motion.
