I don’t know about you, but this makes me very happy. I rarely buy fish any more because I’m afraid it’s farmed and dangerous. (sorry—that just came out, and I liked it!).
I occasionally buy fish labeled “wild-caught”, but not as often as I’d like to eat fish as so much of it is loaded with heavy metals and other toxins. Cold-water fish from the deep south or northern waters is my preference.
If you feel strongly about the salmon issue, you can sign the petition below to encourage Costco to follow suit. If you choose not to sign the petition, you could do yourself a favour and cast your vote by refusing to buy Costco salmon. ~ BP
Kroger (Fry’s) and Safeway–the #1 and #2 U.S. conventional grocery chains–have just joined other major retailers like Target, Meijer, Aldi, Giant Eagle, Whole Foods and many others in protecting consumers, wild salmon and the environment by rejecting GE salmon, but there are many companies who still haven’t responded.
So, who’s next?
Costco is one of the largest retailers of salmon and seafood in the U.S. and is one of the last large retailers that hasn’t made a commitment not to sell GE salmon.
Sign the petition here, urging Costco to join its competitors and commit to keeping GE salmon off its shelves.
