Tell the FDA: NO Frankenfish! Petition.

December 28, 2012

Tell the FDA: NO Frankenfish!
“The first genetically engineered salmon – dubbed “frankenfish” – could be in grocery stores and restaurants as early as 2014. The FDA is expected to approve AquaBounty Technologies’ GE salmon after a 60-day public comment period. If approved, it will be the first approved food from a transgenic animal application to enter the U.S. food supply.

Consumer and environmental activists oppose genetically engineered “frankenfish” for many reasons, including the potential danger it poses to human health, to the environment and to the U.S. fishing economy. Michael Hansen, PhD, senior scientist with the Consumers Union, the advocacy and policy arm of Consumer Reports, called the FDA’s Environmental Assessment (EA) of GE salmon “flawed and inadequate.”
Please sign the petition (at the bottom of the page) if you agree that the FDA should reject should AquaBounty’s genetically engineered salmon, at least until it completes further, more reliable safety testing.”
