Comments for FDA General
Questions
1. General Comments Please reconsider the voluntary rule. Labeling of genetically engineered foods must be made MANDATORY! Americans have the RIGHT TO KNOW what is in their food and the right to be able to make informed decisions for themselves and their families. Should problems with GE foods arise in the future, they could only be traced through foods that can be identified. At this time it would be irresponsible to not mandate labeling.
