Tell Congress: Consumers Want Labels on GMO Salmon!

We think the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) was wrong to approve GMO salmon. But it did.

The least the FDA can do now is require clear labels on a genetically engineered food product that some scientists agree poses risks to human health and the environment.

TAKE ACTION: Tell your members of Congress to support the Genetically Engineered Salmon Labeling Act (H.R. 1104)!

In November 2015, the FDA approved genetically engineered salmon for sale in the U.S., despite our best efforts to stop them.

So far, GMO salmon hasn’t been sold in the U.S. because Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) managed to get the FDA to ban the import and sale of “frankenfish” until the agency agreed to establish labeling guidelines for it.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) meanwhile is working on finalizing GMO labeling rules since the passage of what became known as the "DARK Act." Those rules are shaping up just as we expected: as nothing more than a weak scheme involving QR codes and telephone numbers--and little or no useful labels for consumers.

Murkowski says that’s not good enough. So she’s reintroduced a bill to require clear labels on GMO salmon.

Murkowski has tried multiple times, without luck, to advance similar legislation. It’s only a matter of time before GMO salmon show up in U.S. stores and restaurants. Please take action today!

TAKE ACTION: Tell your members of Congress to support the Genetically Engineered Salmon Labeling Act (H.R. 1104)!
