FDA approves first gentically engineered creature for eating

Center for Food Safety announced plans to sue the Food and Drug Administration to block the agency’s approval for sale and consumption of the genetically engineered Aqua Advantage salmon developed by Aqua Bounty. The suit will be filed in coordination with other colleague plaintiffs.

In approving the AquaBounty transgenic salmon, FDA ignored millions of Americans and more than 40 members of Congress who have expressed vocal opposition. FDA also neglects the concerns of more than 300 environmental, consumer, health and animal welfare organizations, salmon and fishing groups and associations, food companies, chefs and restaurants.
