Comment from Monica Strauser


Please reject this application. There is no need for a genetically modified apple. Genetically modified foods should have more testing and more rules around them. There has not been sufficient testing on the safety of these foods and how they effect the humans that eat them over the long term. Furthermore there are environmental concerns, such as cross breeding on non-GMO with GMO varieties and the increased usage of pesticides and herbicides. If you are going to approve this - at the very least please require labeling. Let the "market" and people speak for themselves with their dollars
