Comments for FDA General
1. General Comments To me the term 'fresh food' means that the food in question has undergone NO processing. Irradiated food is, by definition, not fresh food. To undermine the defintion of fresh is to intentionally mislead the consumer. If irradiated food were allowed to be labeled as fresh then I, the consumer, would be paying fresh food prices for a significantly lower quality product.
