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.
