College Park, MD FDA Meeting

Event details

SF Bay Area Celiac News Briefs....July 29

The FDA has just posted its intent to hold a public meeting

on August 19th regarding the definition and usage of the

term "gluten free." This is a result of the Food Allergen

Labeling and Consumer Protection Act passed in 2004 that

requires a rule to be established by 2008. The meeting will

focus on gluten free food manufacturing, analytical methods

used to verify the gluten free status of products, and food

purchasing practices of consumers. It will be held at FDA

offices in College Park, MD, a suburb of Washington, DC.

Those attending must register by August 12. Written

comments may be submitted by mail or electronically.
