They Sinned Against The Birds, Beasts, Reptiles And Fishes (Enoch 7) And Began To Teach The Blending Of Species (Jasher 4) So That All DNA Was Corrupted On Earth (Gen 6): Genetically Altered Salmon Closing In On Your Table
Genetically Altered Salmon Get Closer to the Table
By ANDREW POLLACK
The Food and Drug Administration is seriously considering whether to approve the first genetically engineered animal that people would eat — salmon that can grow at twice the normal rate.
The developer of the salmon has been trying to get approval for a decade. But the company now seems to have submitted most or all of the data the F.D.A. needs to analyze whether the salmon are safe to eat, nutritionally equivalent to other salmon and safe for the environment, according to government and biotechnology industry officials. A public meeting to discuss the salmon may be held as early as this fall.
Some consumer and environmental groups are likely to raise objections to approval. Even within the F.D.A., there has been a debate about whether the salmon should be labeled as genetically engineered (genetically engineered crops are not labeled).
