Comments for FDA General
Questions
1. General Comments Be careful with this. Because the U.S. food distribution system does not segregate crops that are grown from engineered seeds from those developed through traditional methods, truthful labels would all say that a given product MAY contain some genetically engineered material. At that point, labeling would become meaningless.
