New FDA Food Labels: $2 Billion on the Line?

The Food and Drug Administration earlier this year proposed changes to nutrition information labels included on most packaged food products. The agency has extended the public comment period until Aug. 1 on the proposed label rules.

CQ Roll Call’s Georgina Gustin reports that the new labels will be costly for food manufacturers and the FDA estimates the food industry will spend $2 billion adjusting product nutrition information.

Manufacturers are also wary of the label proposal’s call for a new label details noting “added sugars” in products.

    An interesting discussion is worth comment. I think that you should write more on this topic, it might not be a taboo subject but generally people are not enough to speak on such topics. To the next. Cheers

    I’m impressed, I have to say. Really not often do I encounter a weblog that’s each educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you will have hit the nail on the head. Your idea is outstanding; the problem is one thing that not enough persons are talking intelligently about. I am very comfortable that I stumbled across this in my seek for something relating to this.
