Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

The Food and Drug Administration is inviting public comments by Dec. 29 on the proposed extension of a 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. This information collection concerns petitions by interested parties requesting an exemption from 100% identity testing of dietary ingredients. Although the FDA has not received any such petitions in the last three years it believes that approval of this information collection should be extended to provide for the potential future need of a firm in the dietary supplement industry.
