Fishy Color: California State Supreme Court Rules on Farm-Raised Salmon

Salmofan2a

The color of farmed salmon would be a dusty grey were it not for the unnatural addition of the petrochemical-derived coloring agents canthaxanthin and astaxanthin.

The California Supreme Court just ruled that consumer groups may continue their lawsuits against big supermarkets like Albertson’s, Safeway, Trader Joe’s, Costco, Whole Foods and others—based on their claims that farm-raised salmon sold in their stores must be labeled “artificially colored.”  Via: Sierra Sun  LINK
