GMO (Genetically Modified Organism) Leaks

If you are a scientist and you produce some noxious or radioactive chemical and it leaks into the environment, you send in a hazmat team to dig up the contaminated soil and contain it. However, if you are a GMO scientist and one of your creations gets out into the environment it will not stay put. Life does everything it can to spread to every spot on earth that it can gain a foothold. If it has any unexpected negative side effects, too bad! There is no way to put the genie back in the bottle. That is why you must be thousands of times more careful with experimental life forms than with chemicals.
