Comments for FDA General
Questions
1. General Comments It should be required that bioengineered foods be so labeled. If they are, as the producters claim, good for us, the producers should have no problem being upfront about these qualities. If, as many consumers fear, there is the potential for allergic reactions and other problems, the consumer should be informed in order to make the right decision. I can think of no reason why these foods shouldn't be clearly labeled.
