Do not approve genetically engineered salmon

Dear Commissioner Hamburg, 

I am writing to urge you not to approve genetically engineered (GE) salmon. The draft environmental assessment released last December does not adequately examine the risks posed by the potential commercialization of the first genetically engineered food animal. It fails to adequately address the many potential food safety risks posed by GE salmon, including the potential human health impacts of GE salmon's higher hormone levels and increased allergenicity.



Finally, the agency has ignored the fact that this new genetically engineered fish is not needed or desired by consumers, and the fish may not even live up to claims about increased growth rates, the whole reason it is being proposed. There is no need to put human health and the environment at risk for GE salmon. I urge you to reject this genetically engineered fish.

Sincerely,
