Genetically engineered (GE) salmon were approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in November 2015 - the first GE animal ever approved for human consumption. FDA has stated they do not believe the fish need to be labeled as genetically engineered, leaving consumers in the dark. We have launched a national campaign to keep GE salmon out of our supermarkets and off our plates. We've contacted the nation's bigest grocery stores, seafood companies, and seafood restaurants asking them to commit to avoid GE salmon. Dozens have committed not to purchase or sell GE salmon, but there are many more to go! See where your favorites stand.
NOTE: The companies named in this Guide have communicated their policies to not source or sell genetically engineered seafood in at least one of the following ways: by signing and returning the Pledge for GE-Free Seafood; direct email, mail, or fax communication with CFS or Friends of the Earth; public statements to the media; corporate policies posted on company websites; or survey responses to Greenpeace’s annual Carting Away the Oceans report.
