Comments for FDA General
1. General Comments I strongly believe that consumers have a right to know if what they are buying has been developed with bioengineering. A voluntary program does not guarantee this and is potentially detrimental to the health and well-being of a large portion of the population. This would be unfair and present a disadvantage to those people not priveledged enought to buy food at a store which investigates the origin of each product. Please make labeling MANDATORY.
