List it, label it, make clear what is in the food you're buying. You have a right to know and you should want to know.

Noted. Thanks, Carrie. Our tax dollars pay for and support the FDA. It is in the best interest of taxpayers/consumers to know exactly what is in our food. It should be against the law for ANY lobbying group to have the ability to demand any action from the FDA that could be detrimental to our health. I am so sick of those with the most money making/changing rules & regulations. Why are we all paying taxes??

We need less sugar and especially salt, we can add our own.
Would help many people.
It's possible to add what is needed but take it out? No
That would be healthier for all!
Thank you Carrie

There should be no debate: of course they should be listed, but then they shouldn't be there at all! Thx, Carrie.

Of course they should be listed. Why on earth do you need to add sugar to anything? That was one thing I really didn't like about New Orleans; cane sugar and corn starch and fructose in everything.

'the agency had not conducted its research project to determine if the disclosure would be helpful to consumers.”
Surely it's up to consumers to judge if it's helpful or not? I'd certainly like to know.

The consumers have a right to know plain and simple. I don't know why it's even up for debate. Thanks Carrie.
