From Food & Water Watch
Just as 2012 was wrapping up, the FDA decided to slip through a shoddy environmental assessment report using data from AquaBounty, the biotech company responsible for bringing us the genetically-engineered (GE) salmon, in support (duh!) of GE salmon.
This move by FDA (Food & Drug Administration), the last step before approving its sale across the country, did not go unnoticed. An outraged public inundated the agency with thousands of comments. Word from the Organic Consumers Association is that the FDA has now extended the public comment period re: approval of genetically engineered (GE or GMO) salmon an additional 60 days – new deadline: 4/26/13 to submit comments to the FDA asking them to stop their mad dash to put GE salmon in our grocery stores and to reject this frankenfish — Stop GE Salmon!
