Comments for FDA General
1. General Comments I am opposed to voluntary labeling. I think labeling should be mandatory and that consumers have the right to know whether they are buying and eating genetically engineered foods, whether the foods have been tested extensively or not. What is the harm in spreading knowledge? Companies already label for nutritional value. What is so difficult about adding contains BE foods or contains no BE foods? We have the right to know.
