This isn't an issue that has just come up. Proper and transparent labeling of genetically modified/engineered salmon has been an issue since 2015. Yet the unknown potential effects that ingestion of these salmon might have remains and are terrifying. How do our governmental agencies get away with playing rope-a-dope with issues that affect the health and sustainability of natural species, let alone human health? Or why do they generate "legislative guidelines" that provide producers of genetically engineered fish loopholes to honest and fair disclosure?
"This case is about the future of food: FDA should not, and cannot, responsibly regulate this GE animal, nor any future GE animals, by treating them as drugs under a 1938 law," George Kimbrell, senior attorney for the Center for Food Safety, 4/30/18.
"In its current form, categorical exemptions prevent this law from delivering the meaningful protections Americans deserve. Highly processed ingredients, many products of new genetic engineering techniques such as CRISPR and TALEN, and many meat and dairy products will not require disclosure,” Non-GMO Project Executive Director Megan Westgate. 12/21/18
