FDA Food Chemicals Transition Memo

November 20, 2020

"In order to protect public health, the FDA must act to re-assess existing food chemicals, strengthen its approach to evaluating new food chemicals, close loopholes that companies exploit to use new additives without FDA review, and modernize its scientific approach to evaluating safety.

The undersigned organizations have developed top-line recommendations we urge the FDA to take without delay. Taking these initial steps would go a long way toward addressing the dangerous gaps in food safety connected to toxic chemicals in food and food packaging. We would welcome the opportunity to discuss any of the below items in greater detail and offer more specific, detailed next steps. We appreciate the opportunity to provide this input."
