FDLI Food and Dietary Supplement Safety and Regulation Conference
Ingredients and Food Contact Substances: Assessing the U.S. Approach to Safety
Nury Yoo joined a panel discussing “Ingredients and Food Contact Substances: Assessing the U.S. Approach to Safety” at the Food and Drug Law Institute’s Food and Dietary Supplement Safety and Regulation Conference.
Recently, FDA received a petition seeking to rescind its approval of bisphenol-A (BPA) in food packaging. This is just the latest example of safety concerns surrounding substances added to our food and food packaging, both intentionally and unintentionally. Nury and the panel discussed a wide range of ingredient and contact substance safety topics, including allergen disclosures and recalls, “Generally Recognized as Safe” (GRAS) notices, and the role of Proposition 65 and other state regulations in food and dietary supplement safety.
