Weigh in on natural labeling


The FDA is still currently requesting comments on what “natural ” means on food labeling. This is our opportunity to say that we do not want pesticides, chemicals, etc. in “natural’ labeled foods, and we can also stipulate that irradiated foods and GMO produced foods also do not constitute “natural.”

The deadline is May 10, 2016. This is an extension from an earlier February deadline. Comments can be made online at Regulations.gov and go to Docket folder FDA-2014-N-1207 or submitting by regular mail.

For more details go to: www.fda.gov/Food/NewsEvents/ConstituentUpdates/ucm471919.htm.
