Comments for FDA General
1. General Comments I OPPOSE your proposal for requiring companies putting new bioengineered foods on the market to simply notify you prior to their release. This allows many untested products to be released to the unsuspecting and uninformed public, without proper testing or assurance of safety. Bioengineered foods can have many ill effects, both health related (to humans as well as to animals) and environmentally related. Your proposed rules do nothing to protect the public or the environment, and abdicate your role as overseer and gatekeeper to the general public health assurance of our food supply. Please reconsider this rule in light of your duty to protect the public from the many unknown repercussions of bioengineered foods.
