Last chance to stop "frankenfish" GMO salmon

Dear Friend,

Late last year the FDA quietly took a major step toward approving
AquaBounty's "frankenfish" genetically modified salmon.

Its approval would be a radical move by the FDA - the first genetically
modified animal ever to enter our food supply. It's no wonder the FDA
posted its final review, clearing the way for approval, on the Friday
before the Christmas holiday, when few people would notice.

The FDA is now taking public comments on its study, which is expected to
lead to approval of the frankenfish. This is our last chance to keep GMO
salmon off our grocery store shelves, and stop the dangerous trend of
introducing GM animals into our food supply.

Tell the FDA: Don't approve GMO Salmon. Submit a public comment now.
