Support the California Bill to Label GE Fish
Last year, the California Assembly Health Committee considered a bill which would require that all genetically engineered (GE) fish sold in California contain clear and prominent labeling. The bill, AB 88, was held last year and is now scheduled for a vote in the Assembly Appropriations Committee in mid January. The Center for Food Safety (CFS), a co-sponsor of the bill, testified before the Committee last year.
The federal agency charged with protecting our food supply is failing us yet again. FDA’s current review of the first-ever proposed commercialization of GE salmon is woefully inadequate and the agency plans no labeling of the fish, despite over 400,000 comments from people like you urging the Agency not to approve the GE salmon, and to require labeling should they approve it anyway.
Consumers have the right to know about the food they consume and feed their families. Until FDA does an adequate environmental and human health review of genetically engineered salmon, it is up to individual states to protect consumers and their families.
