YOU SHOULD KNOW THAT THIS GENETICALLY ENGNEERED SALMON WAS PUSHED THROUGH FDA APPROVAL AS A NEW "ANIMAL DRUG APPLICATION" -- NOT AS "CONSUMER FOOD"

 ▶ FDA CLOSER TO APPROVING BIOTECH SALMON, CRITICS FURIOUS 

Critics say the new salmon is a "dangerous experiment" considered as a new "animal drug application" not food, and have pressured the FDA to reject it. They say the FDA has relied on outdated science and substandard methods for assessing the new fish. "We are deeply concerned that the potential of these fish to cause allergic reactions has not been adequately researched," said Michael Hansen, a scientist at the Consumers Union. http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/12/21/us-usa-fish-gmo-idUSBRE8BK16O20121221?feedType=RSS&feedName=healthNews
