In a move that has been slammed by opponents, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has lifted an import alert that prevented controversial genetically engineered salmon from entering the US market.
The long running battle previously came to a head in 2016 when Congress blocked the FDA from allowing AquaAdvantage Salmon to appear in grocery stores after the food watchdog declared the product, which critics have dubbed “frankenfish,” safe to eat.
That year also saw Congress pass a law directing the US Department of Agriculture to set a national mandatory standard for disclosing genetically modified foods.
