Comments for FDA General
1. General Comments I believe that this regulation should be approved and stringent rules should be placed on those that tend to those animals that are to become food. If there is a simple way that could save lives from an illness caused by what they eat, it should be known and followed at all costs. It is understandable that animal activists do not want the animals to be in pain but if it is between the pain of an animal and the life of an individual, the choice should always be to save the individual. While there are other animals not to be used as food, the regulations should include all animals. I believe this because when a few are allowed to use the drug, others that are to be used as food might have the drug secretly given to them.
