Federal Register SUMMARY: The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is
proposing revisions of its labeling requirements for foods treated with
ionizing radiation. FDA is publishing this advance notice of proposed
rulemaking (ANPRM) in response to the direction given in the Joint
Explanatory Statement of the Committee of Conference that accompanied
the Food and Drug Administration Modernization Act of 1997 (FDAMA). The
FDAMA Joint Statement directed FDA to publish for public comment
proposed changes to current regulations relating to the labeling of
foods treated with ionizing radiation. As a first step, the agency is
making available to the public, through this document, various documents
including the relevant text from the FDAMA Joint Statement; prior FDA
rulings regarding food irradiation; recent submissions to FDA
regarding the labeling of irradiated foods, including a citizen
petition; a report of a meeting attended by FDA representatives at which
labeling of irradiated foods was discussed; and other relevant
materials. The agency encourages interested persons to submit comments,
including pertinent data and information, to aid FDA's consideration of
revisions to the labeling requirements for irradiated foods.
DATES: Written comments must be submitted by May 18, 1999.
Date has been changed to July 18, 1999.
