The article offers information on the decision of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to approve genetically engineered (GE) salmon for human consumption. It informs that if approved, the salmon would be the first genetically engineered (GE) animal on the market. It further informs that because the FDA is unlikely to require the salmon to be labeled as GE, consumers will have no way of knowing whether the salmon they buy is engineered.
