Pledge Not to Sell Genetically Modified Salmon at Costco

    1. Petition by

      Campaign for Safe Food

Genetically modified salmon could be approved for human consumption by the FDA this year, despite the fact that industry safety tests show high allergy risks and increased amounts of a growth hormone associated with cancer. 

Scientists have also discovered that some of the altered salmon are fertile - the FDA is basing their approval on the fish all being sterile females. If these fertile fish escape, they could out-compete wild salmon and cause severe ecological damage.

Even worse, consumers won't be able to choose whether or not to purchase modified salmon because there is no federal labeling requirement.

Join us in asking Costco CEO Craig Jelinek to join Target, Whole Foods, Trader Joes, Aldi and over 2,000 grocery stores in refusing to sell genetically modified salmon to his customers.

      the production of GMO salmon is another threat to survival of wild salmon species. GMO salmon are farmed, but will escape to the ocean. Some processes for producing feed for farmed salmon can concentrate toxic materials, which become part of the salmon.
