1. General Comments If nutrition labels need to state correctly the fat, calorie and other nutrients for consumers to make an educated decision for their purchase, it should also be necessary for genetically engineered food to be labeled. So WE consumers can avoid g.e. food, or purchase it knowingly, not for the food companies to be sneaky and slipping it in. Do your job and THROUGHLY test these products BEFORE allowing them to be sold and avoid the lawsuits that will follow when it does health damage. DO NOT COVER THIS UP!
