Tell Congress: Put a Label on Genetically Engineered Salmon

    1. Sponsored by

      Consumers Union of United States

The FDA may soon approve the sale of genetically engineered salmon in our supermarkets -- even though it's unclear what the long-term side effects will be on humans who eat it.

But there's something even fishier going on. The agency could put this salmon -- which reaches market size in half the time as conventional fish -- in stores without any special labeling. That means you might not know the difference between a genetically enhanced salmon and one that grew up naturally, leaving you in the dark about exactly what it is you are eating.

Bipartisan legislation has been filed to slow this process down and make sure any such products are labeled. Take a moment to tell your own federal lawmakers to support these bills and keep our food safe.

      Ban GMO foods! We demand to know where/what/when/how our food reaches our plates! We demand a say in what we put in our bodies! Stop siding with the mega-corporations - you work for us, not them!
