Comments for FDA General
Questions
1. General Comments I firmly believe that ALL food products containing any ingredient from bioengineered plants should be so labelled to allow consumers to purchase those products they feel comfortable with. Just as Biologicalk products are marked and certified/controlled so should be bioengeered products. This will also allow tracking of the results of these products, as no one really knows what the effect on humans and animals will be. Just look at the problems caused by feeding cattle dry food with cattle parts. Meat, poultry, etc the is fed bioengeered plants should also be so marked. Regards, Marcia Powers
