Comments for FDA General
1. General Comments Commissioner Henney - Please reconsider the recent proposed rules regarding geneticially engineered foods. I *strongly* emplore you to write them to require LABELLING of GE and also of stringent testing. I can't imagine a more horrible legacy to leave to our children's generation, than to leave some poorly tested or poorly labelled food that causes disease, malnutrition or does great damage to our many endanged species. You must think of CONSUMERS FIRST! Put agribusiness second. I know how businesses work, and they will all still make a buck even if they have to label things and test things more. Don't sell us out!!!! Sincerely, James Wheaton Fairfax, CA 94930
