SQF January Roundtable Recap
We had a good discussion about the growing prevalence of food allergies, food regulatory agencies, and how the new labeling rules including the FASTER Act, declaring sesame as the 9th major allergen in the U.S.
For your use, here is the session video and also the presentation from Tracie Sheehan, VP, Mérieux NutriSciences. Just after our discussion, the FDA issued a FASTER Act overview video.
Listen in as Dr. Carol D'Lima clarifies food allergen requirements as part of the FDA's safety measures to protect consumers in this video.
Clarifying food allergen requirements for the industry is part of the FDA’s safety measures to help protect consumers from ingredients and foods they may be allergic to without overly restricting food choices.
Thank you again to the Mérieux NutriSciences team for the great information and discussion.
