Thanks, but no franks

We have no idea what effect this biologically manipulated fish would have on wild species or the humans who might consume it. And the fact that the FDA is only considering whether or not to identify it with a label concerns me gravely.

If this fish were approved and went unlabeled, it could literally slip into the stream and leave consumers feeling even more insecure in their seafood consumption.

Tempting though it may be to look for easy answers to global food deficiencies, we ought not take the bait on this one.
