With the pending approval of genetically engineered salmon looming large, The Center for Food Safety today launched a new website dedicated to providing information and helping the public to take action on the first GE animal intended for human consumption. The website comes one week before the FDA’s scheduled public hearing on the approval of AquaBounty’s AquaAdvantage, GE Atlantic salmon.
CFS’s new website, www.ge-fish.org, has educational materials, actions for consumers and companies, incuding chefs and restaurants, and a section containing scientific articles on the GE salmon and other GE fish.
If you are a consumer looking to take action on this issue, please click here.
Food companies interested in expressing concerns, please sign on to the CFS letter to the FDA. Click here to read the letter; to sign on email Heather Whitehead, True Food Netwtork Director with the Center for Food Safety: HWhitehead@icta.org
