A Very, Very Dangerous Precedent: FDA Approves Genetically-Engineered Salmon
Just a few hours ago, the FDA declared that GE-salmon is as safe to eat as non-GE salmon and has given its approval for it to be sold to consumers.
Despite the fact that:
– Over 400,000 comments were submitted demanding that genetically-engineered salmon be rejected.
– More than 300 environmental, consumer, health and animal welfare organizations, salmon and fishing groups and associations, food companies, chefs, and restaurants filed joint statements with the FDA opposing approval.
