Genetically Engineered Animals: From Lab to Factory Farm

This report, provides a scientific overview of the concerns with genetically engineered food animal experiments that are underway, and reveals the risks to human health, the environment and animal welfare.

Gene-edited organisms in agriculture: Risks and unexpected consequences

The unexpected and unintended effects of all genetically engineered organisms, regardless of whether ‘traditional’ or gene-edited genetic engineering techniques have been used, have the potential to cause environmental and human health problems.

From Lab to Fork

Whether made from genetically engineered yeast or through in vitro processes, these next-generation animal replacement products are manufactured in resource-intensive factories. The products are often made with multiple processed ingredients, including gums, flavors, colors and other additives. Some products also include novel, genetically engineered ingredients like the “heme” secreted from genetically engineered yeast, which gives the Impossible Burger its “blood.”

Walmart Statement on GMO Salmon

Walmart is committed to finding safe, affordable and sustainable food for customers that does not negatively affect global communities or the environment. Walmart has no plans to sell GMO salmon.

Pledge for GE-Free Seafood

Genetically engineered salmon is poised to enter the U.S. marketplace without adequate assessment of possible risks to human health, the environment, fish populations, animal welfare, fishing communities on both coasts and a sustainable future for fish.

Genetically Engineered Salmon: A Threat to the Environment and Public Health

At least 35 species of genetically engineered fish are currently being developed around the world. One of these fish -- a GE salmon often referenced to as the “frankenfish” -- could soon appear on U.S. grocery shelves.

Genetically Engineered Mosquitoes in the U.S. Issue Brief

A private firm is planning to release potentially harmful genetically engineered mosquitoes in the Florida Keys as early as January, endangering human health and the environment in what would become the first-ever U.S. release of these engineered bugs.
