FDA approves GMO flu vaccine

'The FDA has now officially approved the first flu vaccine created 
with genetically modified materials, and more are on the way. 

The new vaccine, Flublok, is the first flu vaccine to contain genetically modified (GM) proteins derived from insect cells. Developers say the vaccine contains recombinant DNA technology and an insect virus known as baculovirus that is purported to help facilitate the more rapid production of vaccines.'
