Anti-Frankenfish Candidates Win 2010 Races

Click here to tell Congress you oppose the approval of Frankenfish! For related articles and more information please visit OCA's Resource Center on Genetic Engineering.


The Obama Administration is considering approval of the first genetically modified animal, a fast-growing GMO salmon Frankenfish. Several Senators and Members of Congress have been putting pressure on the Obama's FDA to stop the Frankenfish, and, short of that, to at least require it to be labeled "GMO." And, they're all still in office after the 2010 mid-term elections!
