Comments for FDA General
1. General Comments Dear FDA: I am writing to express my opposition to the FDA's new proposed rule and guidance on genetically engineered (GE) foods. The agency's voluntary labeling and notification proposals are totally inadequate to protect human health, the environment, and my right to know. I fully support the following: All GE foods and food ingredients should be labelled so I am informed and have a choice. GE foods should not be assumed to be safe and should be subject to mandatory pro-market safety testing. There should be a moratorium on GE foods until long-term studies show they are safe for human health and the environment. Thank you and please feel free to contact me for further comment.
