Malachite green, a banned substance and a suspected carcinogen has been found in Canadian farmed salmon Farmed salmon is in the news again. This week it was revealed that the banned fungicide malachite green, has been detected in farmed salmon from Stolt Sea Farms in British Columbia. It is estimated that 85,000 of these fish have already been sold to consumers in Canada, the U.S and abroad, therefore they cannot be recalled. According to the Canadian Food Inspection Agency, 36, 287 kilograms of contaminated farmed salmon reached consumers. Canadian and U.S governments have adopted a zero tolerance for malachite green because of its toxicity but somehow the product ended up on supermarket shelves. Malachite green has been a banned substance in Canada since 1992. The fungicide, is a suspected genotoxic carcinogen and potentially toxic to the reproduction system. The international scientific community classifies malachite green as a suspected carcinogen and mutagen. Safeway and certain other supermarkets continue to sell farmed salmon, in spite of growing evidence of environmental problems and potential human health risks. In fact, Safeway’s promotional material uses the phrase “ingredients for life” to market its products. If the banned carcinogen malachite green along with other toxins found in farmed salmon such as PCBs, PBDEs and dioxins are not part of your Ingredients for Life, then tell Safeway to stop selling this farmed and dangerous product! Send a fax to Safeway telling them to stop selling farmed salmon. Send Safeway a fax
