Goal: 50,000

We have a plan to ensure that Americans are not the world's guinea pigs for FrankenSalmon -- getting grocery chains like Costco to commit to keep its shelves free of GMO fish.

Nearly two million scientists, business owners and consumers have voiced concerns over the health and environmental risks of GMO animals. That’s still not enough to keep it from your dinner plate though. The Federal Drug Administration could be about to approve the sale of genetically engineered salmon.

But here's the good news -- consumer power has worked to ensure genetically modified meat stays off our shelves. More than 60 grocery retailers in America have pledged not to sell genetically engineered salmon and seafood, and Friends of the Earth just got Safeway and Kroger’s to commit to GMO-free meat. Costco is one of the last hold-outs, and if it commits to ban GMO-meat, it would make the government's decision null and void because there would no stores to sell the FrankenSalmon.

Tell Costco to pledge not to sell GMO salmon or other seafood.

It's no wonder that there is such wide scale disapproval of GMOs. There's still so much we don't know about foods like GMO products -- and until more studies are done, we have no clue what FrankenSalmon will do to our health if we serve it to our family. And once GMO fish are in our grocery stores, consumers won't be able to avoid the genetically modified organism -- corporations have fought tooth and nail against GMO labelling rules, pouring millions of dollars in lobbying in recent years. This is why we need to fight to stop GMO salmon from hitting stores in the first place.

Wide scale commercialization of mutant fish at stores like Costco will put our fish stock in danger. Decades of commercial fish farming have shown that no matter how salmon is raised, they will escape. And when the GMO salmon gets out in the wild, it will have considerable risks to our native fish population as well as our coastal economies. Take action now to tell Costco to say no to GMO salmon.

Let Costco know that we want GMO salmon off its shelves.
