Comments for FDA General
1. General Comments Dear FDA: I support your recent action to require premarket approval of bioengineered foods. Furthermore I support your stand that labelling of these foods is unnecessary when the resulting plant is substantially equivalent to the existing marketed form. I personally would love to see labels that read genetically enhanced to reduce chemical pesticide use but I am sure you will get 200,000 form letters from the organic fanatics opposing any kind of positive label. Please continue to stand firm in pursuing a science-based regulatory framework, not only for bioengineered foods, but everything under the FDA's review.
