Comments for FDA General
Questions
1. General Comments I support the FDA's current policy on labeling foods derivered from biotechnology, that is, labeling if a material change has been made that affects nutrition or health. I see no problem with voluntary labeling if a company wants to give consumers a choice of foods without biotech ingredients. Mandatory labeling would be more costly because of the need to keep ingredients separate so I don't think the majority of consumers should have to pay these unneceaary expenses if there is no scientific need for the labeling. Sincerely, Walt Stachon
