Genetically modified salmon could be on your plate any day now. The FDA is just one step away from approving the often-dubbed “frankenfish” for the first time.

According to the Examiner, “Food safety advocates are launching one final effort to stop the FDA from approving genetically modified salmon. [If approved] it would be the first laboratory-created animal approved as food in America.”

Designed to grow twice as fast as regular salmon, the advocates point to a host of concerns, including limited study on the safety of eating engineered salmon and the potential dangers of said salmon interbreeding with regular fish.

Previously, the only FDA approved genetically modified foods have been plants, such as corn and soybeans.

  1. They will find out soon enough that people do not want anything GMO. We will just quit buying any GMO products and substitute something else organic.

  2. All GMOs should be identified on products so we can opt out of buying them in our fish or anything else for that matter, if we don’t want them.

  3. I find this so so scary. Hopefully as a community we can turn this into history!
