Genetically Engineered Salmon Labeling Act

This bill requires the market name of genetically engineered (commonly called genetically modified or GMO) salmon to include Genetically Engineered or GE in front of the existing market name.

The bill also requires the Department of Health and Human Services to ensure that an independent scientific organization reviews the Food and Drug Administration's environmental assessment that supports the approval of a new drug related to AquAdvantage Salmon, a type of genetically engineered salmon.
