Food & Water Watch, Consumers Union, and the Center for Food Safety have filed a Food Additive Petition with FDA’s Office of Food Additive Safety.

The petitioners request that FDA evaluate GE salmon and its components as a food additive and argues that the current review process, evaluating GE salmon as a new animal drug is inappropriate since the GE inputs constitute “a novel substance added to food”.

We post the Petition below as well as a copy of the Center for Food Safety’s Press release.
