    FDA Supports Food Allergen Labeling Bill

    Scott Adams


    Reviewed and edited by a celiac disease expert.

    Celiac.com 12/19/2003 - In a press release dated November 24, 2003, FDA Commissioner, Mark B. McClellan, M.D., Ph.D., applauded the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee reporting out several health-related bills. Among the bills unanimously approved by the Committee was S. 741, a bill that includes the proposed Food Allergen Labeling and Consumer Protection Act of 2003. Action by the Committee took place on November 21.

    I wish to thank the Committee Chairman Senator Judd Gregg, Ranking Member Senator Edward Kennedy and the rest of the Committee members for taking these actions, Dr. McClellan said, and I look forward to continuing to work with the members of both houses of Congress toward the enactment of these bills.

    The Food Allergen Labeling and Consumer Protection Act will provide improved food labeling to better inform consumers who suffer from food allergies.

    Having the endorsement of the FDA will be key as we look ahead to floor action by the full Senate in early 2004.

    Celiac.com's Founder and CEO, Scott was diagnosed with celiac disease  in 1994, and, due to the nearly total lack of information available at that time, was forced to become an expert on the disease in order to recover. Scott launched the site that later became Celiac.com in 1995 "To help as many people as possible with celiac disease get diagnosed so they can begin to live happy, healthy gluten-free lives."  In 1998 he founded The Gluten-Free Mall which he sold in 2014. He is co-author of the book Cereal Killers, and founder and publisher of Journal of Gluten Sensitivity.

    So, proposed health regulations that would require beer labels to include a warning that beer is made with barley or wheat have the Canadian beer industry in a froth.
