Genetically engineered salmon that grows twice as fast as the conventional fish appears to be safe, an advisory committee told the Food and Drug Administration Monday. But they argued that more testing may be needed before it is served on the nation’s dinner tables.If the FDA approves the sale of the salmon, it will be the first time the government allows such modified animals to be marketed for human consumption. The panel was convened by the agency to look at the science of the fish and make recommendations on its safety and environmental impact.
The best part is, there is no law currently to force the producers to have to label their product as genetically engineered. So if it gets approved, you wouldn’t even know if you were eating normal fish or frankenfish! More here.
