Comments for FDA General
Questions
1. General Comments Evidence is mounting that genetically engineered foods threaten our health and the health of the ecosystems on which our lives depend. We believe that we should have the right to know whether or not we are eating genetically engineered foods. A majority of the American people favor adequate testing and labeling of GE foods. We believe that you have the responsibility to put the concerns and health of the people of this country above the concerns of corporate agribusiness. We ask that you ensure that all GE foods and crops are tested for their safety before being sold to consumers. We also ask that you require that any approved GE foods be adequately labeled so that consumers can choose to avoid eating them.
