STOP GE Salmon
10/29/10 UPDATE: Last month, the FDA agreed that there's significant concerns about genetically modified salmon and it must go through rigorous public review before further consideration for approval for consumption. They're holding a public comment period on the LABELING of GE salmon, but since we never got a comment period about the salmon itself, we want to take this opportunity to make ourselves heard!
We will deliver your comments, along with those collected by Food & Water Watch, CREDO and the Center for Food Safety, to the FDA through the public comment period. Help us reach 200,000 signatures!
Scroll to the bottom of the page for links to more information.

The FDA is approving GE Salmon as an animal drug, and this limits public participation in this process. The FDA does not have the capacity to effectively evaluate the safety of genetically engineered animals for human consumption or their impacts on the environment.
Secondly, if genetically engineered salmon are approved for human consumption, I urge you to require them to be labeled as "genetically engineered salmon." Consumers have a right to know that these fish are different from other salmon, both wild caught and farmed, in terms of nutrition and environmental impacts of production.
If these fish are on the market, I need the information provided by a label to make an informed choice.

Stop the greed!
