Some Stores Refuse to Carry GMO Salmon

Several U.S. grocery chains have agreed not to sell a genetically engineered salmon that is nearing approval from the Food and Drug Administration after 17 years of development, a group of environmental and consumer groups said Wednesday.

Retailers that have agreed not to sell the fish include national chains Whole Foods and Trader Joe's, Aldi stores in the eastern half of the country, and PCC Natural Markets in Washington state. Most of the biggest supermarket chains are not participating.

    Worth reading the article; the headline in the Chron made it sound like there was a wholesale (sorry) movement to avoid frankenfish.
    Not on your life; they got Mackey, Trader Joes and two other local sellers to agree.
