"Genetically Altered Salmon? It Doesn't Stop There"

"We've always played with our food — even before we knew about genes or how to change them. ... Now comes an Atlantic salmon that is genetically engineered to grow twice as fast as a regular salmon.

They are weighing other factors, including environmental risks, after two days of intense hearings."
