Genetically modified salmon? The FDA yesterday approved genetically modified salmon for human consumption, the first animal to be approved. These fish take half as long to mature (2 years) and are raised in tanks. There are also no regulations in effect to label these products, so you won’t know if it is genetically modified or not. There are some stores refusing to sell the fish ( Trader Joes, Target..etc.) which is great and the fishing industry is not at all thrilled (ecpecially in Alaska). This is wrong on so many levels….Yuck!
