If approved, genetically engineered salmon (“Frankenfish”) would be the first genetically engineered animal that our Federal Government has ever approved for food consumption. This decision could be a defining moment for humanity, wildlife and our planet. Colin O’Neil, Director of Government Affairs for the Center for Food Safety talks with Food Integrity Now about the inherent dangers of allowing the approval by the FDA of AquaBounty’s GE salmon. O’Neil discusses the risks of GE Salmon being released into the enviroment, as well as the health dangers associated with this untested salmon. His message is one of urgency! O’Neil advocates to everyone to let their voice be heard by the FDA. The comment period to the FDA has been extended until April 26, 2013 and provides a golden opportunity to create a consumer uproar and put a halt to GE Salmon. One way to let your voice be heard is by going to GE-fish.org to send your comment. O’Neil further discusses the Center for Food Safety’s involvement in the historic Bowman vs. Monsanto case and his recent book, Nano Exposed: A Citizen’s Guide to Nanotechnology.
