FDA approves guidelines for genetically engineered meat
Fast-growing salmon. Heart-healthy pigs. Nutrient-packed milk. These and other genetically engineered products have gotten one step closer to store shelves.

The Food and Drug Administration on Thursday announced final guidelines that will help producers clear the regulatory hurdles as they try to bring genetically engineered meat to the marketplace. The guidelines, though themselves not legally binding, will help companies meet mandated regulations.

"This guidance will help the FDA efficiently review applications for products from GE animals to ensure their safety and efficacy," said Randall Lutter, the agency's deputy commissioner for policy.
