Sen. Murkowski says GMO labeling bill would not mandate GMO label for salmon

The GLP aggregated and excerpted this blog/article to reflect the diversity of news, opinion and analysis.

Prior to the final vote, US Senator Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) voiced her opposition to the [Biotechnology Labeling Solutions Act] because it does not mandate clear, unequivocal labels on genetically engineered (GE) salmon, while also preempting Alaska’s labeling law:

“What we’ve been told is that if these genetically engineered salmon are out on the market, those who are marketing these salmon can voluntarily label them,” the Senator claimed.

. . . . “The reality is we will not see the labeling that I, as an Alaskan, who is putting fish on the dinner table for my family would require and would want.”

The Senator also stated she opposes to anything that would mistakenly allow genetically engineered salmon into anyone’s home and have it be mislabeled as salmon.

“. . . . Alaskans will not accept that GE salmon, or this Frankenfish, be sold to us without clear labeling. . . .” she said.

Murkowski has continuously fought to secure a mandatory labeling requirement for GE salmon. . . .
