week the FDA approved a genetically engineered salmon, making it the first GE
animal to be approved for human consumption. The salmon, which we’ve been
warning the public about since 2010, is genetically altered so that it grows to
market size twice as fast as natural salmon. As with other GMO foods, there is
no requirement (nor any likelihood!) that the fish will be labeled as
genetically altered. The approval of the GE salmon will likely lead to the
development of more GE animals.
salmon is expected to enter the market in about two years, but some major
retailers have already pledged not to carry it, including Safeway, Target,
Whole Foods, and Trader Joe’s. But other major chains have not yet signed the pledge.
Write and ask them to promise they’ll never carry GMO salmon!
