Ask Your Senators to Ban GE Salmon

    1. Petition by

      Food & Water Watch

Genetically engineered salmon is on track to be the first GE animal approved for human consumption. It's time to stop this Frankenfish for good by passing a bill to ban GE salmon in the U.S.

The FDA is trying to approve GE salmon as a new animal drug, but the truth is, U.S. food agencies don't have a way to fully evaluate the impacts of GE salmon on human health or the environment. Last fall, we delivered over 90,000 comments from our supporters opposing the approval of GE salmon and so far, the FDA hasn't approved it.

Can you ask your senators to co-sponsor the bill to ban GE salmon (S. 230)?
