Keep GE Salmon Off Our Tables

Keep GE Salmon Off Our Tables: Tell Supermarkets, Food Companies, and Seafood Restaurants to Reject GE Salmon!

Center for Food Safety (CFS), along with Friends of the Earth and a coalition of thirty consumer, food safety, fishing, environmental, sustainable agriculture, parent, public health and animal welfare organizations, have launched a national Campaign for GE-Free Seafood. Over the last month, we’ve sent letters to the nation’s top grocery stores, seafood companies, and seafood restaurants asking them to commit to not sell genetically engineered fish should it come to market.

Some of the biggest grocery stores in the U.S. have already replied, stating that they will not sell genetically engineered salmon in their stores, including: Whole Foods, Trader Joes, Marsh Supermarkets, Aldi, and PCC Natural Markets! Additionally, over 200 chefs and restaurants have signed CFS’s Pledge for GE-Free Fish stating that they will not intentionally purchase, sell, or serve genetically engineered salmon in their restaurants. Together, these supermarkets and restaurants are showing that they care about consumers and sustainable fisheries. But there are a lot more companies yet to sign!

Since the FDA has stated that it will likely not require GE fish to be labeled, consumers will have no way of avoiding the fish at the market unless companies make clear to consumers where they stand on the issue.

Help urge these companies to take a position rejecting GE salmon!
