Stop That Fish!
September 16 is a big day in the effort to stop the FDA from approving GE salmon. Food & Water Watch is holding a National Day of Action to oppose the approval of genetically engineered salmon by the FDA. We implore consumers to make sure we have a say in this fight against an experimental food mutation that is currently making its way through the FDA.
If you are concerned because GE salmon has not been proven safe for human consumption, and that the FDA has been secretive throughout much of the approval process, you can take action to stop the process so we can ask critical questions about GE salmon.
Today, September 16, consumers are taking time out of their busy workday to make their voices heard. We are asking people around the country to contact the Obama administration to tell the President to stop the FDA from approving GE salmon.
If you live in the Washington, D.C. area, you can participate with us in our rally and press conference today, September 16, at 3:15pm. Following the event, Ben & Jerry’s — who are supporting us in this effort — will be giving away free Phish Food ice cream and we’ll be generating phone calls to the White House to oppose GE salmon.
We encourage all consumers to be informed about this issue as much as possible. We have devoted an entire section of our website to providing information about GE salmon. It is clear that we have to move quickly and stop that fish before it reaches the food system.
