GMOs are living things that have had changes introduced into their genetic material to enhance specific natural properties like pest or disease resistance. Commercial GMOs in the US are limited to plant or plant materials. Some examples of GMOs currently being researched are vitamin-enriched rice and fast-growing salmon.

Clover Leaf does not sell any genetically modified seafood. Roughly 98% of the species we sell are wild-caught, and those few that are farmed are not genetically modified. The soya oil used in some of our products, however, may be genetically modified. Current regulations do not require the identification and labeling of GMOs, so consequently, our products containing refined soybean oil may or may not be produced from GM soybeans. Labeling either as “containing” or “not containing” could be equally inaccurate.
