Goal: 15,000 Progress: 9,390

How would you feel if you were told your food was manipulated with genetic engineering? For most of us, the thought would be quite unsettling.

But it's not a myth — certain companies are trying to push the genetically engineered salmon agenda, hoping to start selling salmon whose genes have been manipulated to make them grow larger than their natural counterparts.

The FDA has said there are only minute differences between the two fish, but the fact is genetically engineered salmon hasn't been around long enough to truly understand its implications. Like any other fish, genetically altered salmon could contain dangerous allergens. In addition, no one is sure of the effects these fish would have on the salmon's ecosystem.

Sign the petition urging the FDA to understand the consequences of genetically engineered salmon before giving its stamp of approval.

Dear FDA Commissioner is Dr. Margaret A. Hamburg:

It may not be long before genetically manipulated animal food products are sitting on our dining room tables. That's because several American companies are developing technology to alter the genes of certain fish in order to attain specific physical characteristics.

Genetically engineered salmon can be many times larger than their natural counterparts, thus the incentive for the experiment. However, this technology simply hasn't been around long enough to truly know the effects it might have both on humans and the environment.

Playing around with genetics and DNA is a dangerous activity that should only be done under the most informed of circumstances. We can't have genetically engineered salmon hitting stores until all implications have been explored and understood.

Please do not give your stamp of approval to this risky experiment until you have all of the necessary information.

Thanks for your time.
