The Torah says that it is forbidden to mix to seed or two animals. So does this mean that genetically engineered foods(e.g. tomatoes injected with fish genes to make them stay fresh longer) are forbidden to eat?

Though Chazal point to a specific side effect: timtum halev. [Based on v'nitmeisem/v'nitamtem bam] That's why, according to the Rema, a Jewish child should not nurse from a non Jewish wet nurse-- even though her milk may be halachically permissible, it is "metamtem es halev umolid teva ra."
See the Mesilas Yesharim on nekiyus.

Ruven, I've heard different things about geenetically engineered foods, it's a whole debate, but I dont know about animal dna into plants. It might not be mixing/kilayim since they're two seperate categories of things, and I dont know how the process works but it's probably not a normal grafting.

iluv,
It affects our neshamos negatively, and imbues us with some sort of trait of whatever animal it is from (in the case of foods from nonkosher animals). There are physical dangers as well.
