Pledge Not to Sell Genetically Modified Salmon at Costco

      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.

      Americans THROW AWAY SO MUCH FOOD, it's a sin. If we produced a little less, maybe we would not need GM foods; we would throw away less; people would learn to eat less; obesity would go down. We, as Americans must take example from the food industry in Europe. They produce less and eat less. Their supermarkets are not empty - they just have a few tens of choices, instead of a few hundreds of choices. I am sure we would not starve without GM foods. We we just have to re-learn to eat foods in season, and we would have to learn to be more frugal we the way we buy food for home, or order when eating out. The reason for GM foods is MONEY! The food industry looses money with perisable merchansise. So they increase the shelf life of the product by Genetically Modifying food. We HAVE to respect nature. If we don't - we will kill it. And, without nature we will all die. Nature we will kill us in return. We must stop being such an arrogant species, and learn to live in harmony with nature.
