The Ecology and Development Project
Through research and analysis,
theological reflection, advocacy,
creation of resources, and
collaboration with national and
international players, the Ecology
and Development Project contributes
a Catholic Social Teaching and
common good perspective to the
evolving dialogue on ecology and development, while promoting
ecologically-and socially-just policy
solutions.
The FDA is quietly pushing for the approval of GMO salmon, despite the over 400,000 public comments on the potential of what some are calling “frankenfish” to harm U.S. consumers, ecosystems and industries, while posing no outstanding benefits when the environmental review of the salmon only consists of two flawed studies.
“It is extremely disappointing that the Obama Administration continues to push approval of this dangerous and unnecessary product,” said Andrew Kimbrell, executive director for Center for Food Safety.  “The GE salmon has no socially redeeming value; it’s bad for the consumer, bad for the salmon industry and bad for the environment.  FDA’s decision is premature and misguided.”
“If FDA actually evaluated GE salmon as a food additive, including allergy-causing potential, they would not likely be able to approve it because of the health risks that have can already be seen in an incomplete set of data.” said Michael Hansen, Senior Scientist with Consumers Union.
