Comments for FDA General
1. General Comments Genetically engineered foods are a threat to the health of this country. IF they are to be allowed at all they MUST have required labeling so that consumers can choose whether or not to buy them. How can people make choices regarding their health and the food they buy if there is no information available? If you were marketing a product and you didn't have to put on a lable saying what was in it would you do so? Of course not, especially if that lable might turn away a potential customer. Voluntary labeling is no labeling at all. No labeling is the same as lying to the consumer. There is a reason that other countries are banning GE foods. The FDA needs to do it's job and quit kowtowing to the mega-corporation food producers. Ban GE foods!
