Spell-checker befouls story

Food summit seeks “green revolution” for Africa

ban-160.jpgAs leaders made lofty speeches, many blaming trade barriers and befouls for driving up prices, delegations worked on a summit declaration for release on Thursday.

The United States found itself on the defensive regarding befouls, along with Brazil which is the world’s largest producer of sugar-cane ethanol, and U.S. Agriculture Secretary Ed Schafer bristled at the criticism.

You’ve got “befouls” in two places in this story. I think you mean “biofuels.”
