Tell Costco: Please Don’t Sell GMO Salmon, Ever!
Thanks to consumer pressure, more than 60 grocery retailers across the U.S., including the #1 and #2 grocers, Kroger and Safeway, have committed to either not selling GMO salmon, or to at least labeling it, if they do choose to sell it.
Conspicuously absent from that list? Costco.
The U.S Food & Drug Administration (FDA) could approve AquaBounty Technologies’ AquAdvantage GMO salmon any day now, despite the 1.8 million comments the agency has received from the public and from scientists who warn of the environmental and health risks posed by this “frankenfish.”
Once GMO salmon is approved, it will be sold in stores, with no label to distinguish it from non-GMO salmon.
