1. General Comments I am writing to say that as an educated consumer, and mother of twin 15 months old girls, I would like to make sure that all bio-or genetically modified foods be labeled as such. I understand that this labeling is now only required on a voluntary basis. While there may be benefits from genetically modified foods, I think that consumers should be able to know which products have been modified prior to purchase. Thanks for your hard work in keeping American food products safe (it is greatly appreciated, as I have travelled to Mexico and India and become quite ill on several occasions). Bonnie Bridges
