Stop Genetically Engineered Salmon From Reaching Your Plate

We have until November 22nd to submit comments to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) demanding they reject genetically engineered (GE) salmon, and if it is approved, require GE salmon to be labeled.

Stop GE Salmon From Reaching Your Plate
The FDA is trying to approve GE salmon as a new animal drug, but the truth is U.S. food agencies have not evaluated the impacts on human health or the environment. Say no to Frankenfish.

Worst of all, if these GE salmon are introduced into our food system, under current law, they won't be labeled so consumers won't know what they are buying or eating!
