Tell Congress to Stop GE Salmon
Ask Your Rep to Cosponsor Young's Bill to Stop Frankenfish!
The Obama Administration's FDA seems bent on letting the biotech industry get their genetically modified salmon into ocean factory farms that are already spreading filth and disease. The FDA knows that GMO salmon are less nutritious, more likely to cause cancer or trigger allergies, and have a higher rate of deformities than normal fish. Rep. Young's bill, H.R.521, would prevent the FDA from approving dangerous GMO fish.
Please ask your Member of Congress to cosponsor H.R.521 today.
About This Legislation:
On February 8, 2011, Congressman Don Young, a Republican from Alaska, introduced a bill that would amend the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act to deem genetically-engineered fish to be unsafe under provisions related to new animal drugs and adulterated food. This bill is desperately needed now as the Obama Administration's FDA is likely to approve the first "Frankenfish," a genetically modified salmon, very soon.
