1. General Comments Re: Premarket Notice: I would urge you to require a longer notification time-frame for new GE products. The entire subject of GE foods is being pushed through the system by big corporations. The average citizen is really just now learning that there are more consequences of GE foods than how they look on the plate. Our personal health and that of our planet are at stake. More diligent testing should be done regarding GE foods. I urge you not to facilitate profits for the big corps. before the very negative aspects of this technology are thoroughly understood and evaluated. Producers should give you more time to check out new products... what's the rush, other than profit for them? Take the time to investigate; there's just too much at stake not to.
