I would like to see the LABELING ! "Cloned," "Organic," "Genetically modified" etc. On meat, on vegetables, on fruits ! A lot of drugs , which were considered completely safe 5-10-20 years ago, are considered to be not safe today. Asbestos and lead were considered safe as well. I need labels ! Your "risk assessment" is based only on what we know up to now, and we do not know a lot !
Your "risk management plan" is vague at best ! Your "guidance for industry" is useless, because guidances are 'self-imposed' by definition, and as a result of that they're always Ignored. "Desirable traits" and "Higher quality meat" are very dangerous terms, because they can be abused and what is a 'desirable trait' for a producer, can be very much Not desirable for the consumers. I would like to know "What is in my food ?" and "Where it came from ?"
