Tell the FDA: No genetically engineered salmon on our plates


The FDA is poised to approve genetically engineered salmon for human consumption. But they haven't done a full Environmental Impact Statement of the risks.

This salmon has been genetically altered to grow twice as fast as real salmon and would be the first-ever genetically engineered animal allowed to enter the food supply by any regulatory agency in the world. To make matters worse, the FDA probably won't require it to be labeled, so we'll have no idea if we're eating it!

Once the FDA has done its due diligence, we believe it will have no choice but to reject this frankenfish. Please urge the FDA to conduct a full Environmental Impact Statement that captures the many environmental, economic and social risks of genetically engineered salmon.  Sign the petition now and tell the FDA to say no to genetically enginereed salmon.
