Less than one week to reach one million

The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is preparing to approve genetically engineered salmon, which would be the first genetically engineered animal on supermarket shelves in the United States. The salmon is engineered to produce hormones year-round that cause the fish to grow at twice its natural rate - without labels, people in the US will never know if they are eating it or not.

There is less than one week left until the FDA responds to a petition calling for labeling of genetically engineered foods -- and we need to make sure the FDA knows how Americans feel about this issue before that deadline.

That's why I submitted a comment to the FDA through Justlabelit.org demanding that genetically engineered foods be labeled. Please visit the petition page at Justlabelit.org and tell the FDA that you support mandatory labeling of genetically engineered foods: http://www.JustLabelIt.org/take-action?track=sotaf
