The Food and Drug Administration is inviting public comments by Jan. 30 on a proposed collection of information related to the U.S. food labeling regulations, which require food producers to disclose to consumers and others specific information about themselves or their products on the label or labeling of their products. The FDA recently became aware that the third-party disclosure burdens associated with the requirements to declare the amount of trans fatty acids present in a food as well as the voluntary declaration of the quantitative amount and the percent of daily value of a dietary ingredient on a “per day” basis in addition to the required “per serving” basis are in use without current Office of Management and Budget approval. To remedy this oversight, most appropriately streamline these information collections and eliminate redundancy in its information collection requests, the FDA is seeking to revise this information collection to include these third-party disclosure elements.
