The Food Allergy and Anaphylaxis Network (FAAN) met with the FDA in March to discuss concerns that the FDA’s food safety priorities might have changed because of the peanut contamination issues. However, the FDA assured FAAN that food allergy labeling is still of the upmost importance to the agency.
Back in September, my fellow blogger wrote an entry on the allergy labeling public hearings that occurred. Anne Munoz-Furlong, FAAN Founder, said the FDA is currently reviewing the public comments they received before, during and after that meeting.
Any food allergy label updates on your end?
