— A Florida company that sells fertilized crays are calling the U.S. government’s approval of its product “insane.”
The American Crayfish Alliance is pushing the FDA to stop the FDA approval of fertilized white and red crays because they contain white and not blue eggs.
Crayfish industry group CEO Mike Laskowski says fertilized red crickets are better than fertilized blue crickets because they’re “more resistant to disease.”FDA officials said they would not comment on the industry group’s claims.
But Laskowski said the FDA should reconsider its approval because the company believes the red crrayfish is genetically different from its white counterpart.
The FDA has said it will not be reopening its approval process for fertilized crayfish, which it said were born in the United States but have been brought over to the country.
