Thousands of comments have been filed with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) since November 12, 2015 for its ‘open comment’ period on the ‘natural’ foods label. Helping to fill up the comments was The American Nurses Association, weighing in on how products containing genetically modified ingredients should not be allowed in any product labeled ‘natural.’

Executive director Debbie D. Hatmaker wrote in the organization’s comments:

“Furthermore, ANA requests that the FDA require clear, appropriate food labeling including the country-of-origin and any genetic modification of any of the food’s ingredients.

The public has a right to know the contents of their food and food products and the manner in which they were processed or modified.”

What is also interesting is the lack of comments by big players in the food industry. The North American Meat Institute and the Grocery Manufacturers Association joined to request more time to prepare comments and compile information.

Due to public requests, the comment period has been extended to May 10, 2016. You can make your comments, here. PLEASE DO!
