It is unconscionable to allow any contamination of the nation's food supply with untested, potentially harmful, genetically altered contaminants.

We do understand it is the current administrations policy to allow industry and agriculture to write their own rules, but we ask you to reconsider your proposed policy.

The people of the United States should not be the unsuspecting guinea pigs for genetically altered crops. Especially since no one will be able to know which crops may have contaminated any particular food.

Consider your own children and/or grandchildren. Do you want them to consume untested genetic contaminants in their foods? Probably not.

Reconsider and make the rules protect the food supply. Don't allow the gene altering industry to run roughshod over you or us.

Thank you,

Clem Wilkes
