Comments for FDA General
Questions
1. General Comments I am very concerned about disclosure, regarding GE foods. Visit any large supermarket and by reading package labels in processed or even unprocessed foods,try to determine the source. As ingredients are masked more and more by packaging and processing it is more difficult to determine what creates its nutritional value. Also, GE foods are new to the scene and we don't really know what their impact will be healthwise etc. It is important that any food product containing GE ingredients are clearly labeled as such. THIS MUST NOT BE OPTIONAL.
