Comments for FDA General
1. General Comments I feel that the more consumers are informed, the better decisions they can make. Therefore, I believe that all genetically-engineered foods should be so labelled so that consumers can make informed decisions concerening the food they eat. Food alllergies are just one potential problem, e.g., corn products containing peanut or other legume genes. I don't feel this would harm the marketing of these products since many of the GE products will eventually be cheaper than non-GE foods due to higher productivity and fewer pesticides required.
