Stop Enviropig!

The so-called "Enviropig™" could soon be the first genetically modified (GM) (also called genetically engineered or GE) food animal on the market.

Enviropig™ is the trademarked industry name for a pig that has been genetically engineered to excrete less phosphorous in its feces. Enviropig™ was developed by researchers at the University of Guelph in Ontario.

The campaign to Stop Enviropig™ is coordinated by the Canadian Biotechnology Action Network (CBAN) in partnership with Beyond Factory Farming (BFF) .   The National Farmers Union of Ontario passed a resolution against Enviropig at their March 20, 2010 AGM .
