The FDA may soon approve the sale of genetically engineered salmon in our supermarkets – even though it’s unclear what the long-term effects will be for humans eating 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 engineered salmon and one that grew up naturally, leaving you in the dark about exactly what it is you’re eating.
Tell the FDA that you have the right to know what’s in your food! The agency is standing on technicalities in the labeling law, when it only has to declare that genetically engineered salmon is ‘materially’ different – and should be labeled as such.
Sign our petition to the FDA supporting labeling of genetically engineered food. Consumers have the right to know what they’re buying – and eating!
