Tell Costco to Keep GMO Salmon Off Its Shelves

Right now President Obama and the Food and Drug Administration are preparing to approve genetically engineered salmon for sale in the United States. But we need your help to make sure that NO major grocery retailer in the U.S. will buy and sell the world’s first genetically engineered animal made for human consumption to their customers.

At the moment, AquaBounty’s GMO salmon is largely untested, with the FDA mainly reviewing the company’s own scientific data before making its decision. But a recent scientific review from Canada released last monthfound that GMO salmon are MORE susceptible to disease and are not growing uniformly as AquaBounty predicted. These are alarming new facts and we need you to take a stand.

Costco is one of the largest retailers of salmon and seafood in the U.S. and is one of the last large retailers that hasn’t yet made a commitment to keep GMO salmon off its shelves.

The FDA may still decide to approve genetically engineered salmon. But, by ensuring that the world’s largest retailers say no to GMO salmon, we can send a strong message that there is no market for it. Tell Costco to join its competitors and just say no to GMO salmon! Every voice counts!

Stop Monsanto’s secret plan to Kill GMO Labeling!


From Food Democracy Now

Breaking: The Monsanto Protection Act is Back and WORSE than ever! Once again Monsanto and giant food companies are scheming behind the scenes to pass a bill in Congress that would kill mandatory GMO labeling efforts and replace it with a gutted version that will preempt states’ rights and give the illusion of oversight. This week, Congressman Mike Pompeo (R-KS) has reintroduced an updated version of his deceptive bill, H.R. 1599, AKA the Ultimate Monsanto Protection Act, to try to convince members of Congress to violate state’s rights in an effort to kill GMO labeling.

This plan is so devious that it radically speeds up the approval process for new GMO crops; limits the FDA and USDA’s ability to conduct premarket safety reviews; declares GMO foods “safe” and forbids states from labeling GMO foods or enforcing existing labeling laws passed in Connecticut, Maine and Vermont. In addition, Pompeo’s bill now prohibits ANY state or local county or city oversight of GMO crops,meaning recent victories like GMO crop bans in Jackson County, Oregon and Maui to protect organic seeds and local community health would be overturned!

This is a blatant power grab to deny Americans their basic right to mandatory GMO labeling and protect flawed GMO products – and we can’t allow them to get away with it. We need your help today. Every voice counts!
