Stop Genetically Engineered Salmon from Reaching Your Plate!
Genetically engineered salmon are on a fast track to being the first GE Animal approved for human consumption. 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. Worst of all, if these GE salmon are introduced into our food system, they won't be labeled, so consumers won't know what they're buying.
Can you take action to keep genetically engineered salmon out of the U.S.?

I urge you to direct the FDA to reject the approval of Aquabounty's GE Salmon. The FDA does not currently have adequate safety testing to ensure that these animals will be safe for human health, wild fish populations and the environment.
Worst of all, while consumers have a right to know what's in their food and how it's being produced, under current law, these genetically engineered salmon would not have to be labeled.
These genetically engineered animals should be rejected for consumer and environmental safety reasons.
