Genetically Engineered Salmon... Sound Fishy?

Tomatoes, strawberries, potatoes, and corn have all been genetically altered. Now salmon could be next. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration are debating it and will decide if genetically engineered salmon is safe for you to eat. The fish injected with growth hormones are able to reach store shelves in 16 to 18 months versus the industry average 30 months. However critics do have some unidentified health concerns.

So, how would you feel if genetically engineered salmon was on the menu at a restaurant or end up on your dinner table? Would you be willing to try or would just stop eating salmon all together? C'mon tell us what ya' think. Email us your comments and Kyra Phillips will read some of them during the 10am hour.

Watch CNN Newsroom with Kyra Phillips every morning from 9-11am ET/6-8am PT right here on CNN.
