FDA is holding hearing on cross contamination labeling
On September 16 the FDA will be holding hearings to talk about cross contamination labeling. It's about time!! They will be discussing a possible uniform in these labels and what wording would be most effective. They are asking for consumers to comment on whether these labels are helpful in our purchasing decisions.
Here is the FDA document about these hearings: [url="http://www.cfsan.fda.gov/%7Elrd/fr080808.html"]http://www.cfsan.fda.gov/%7Elrd/fr080808.html[/url]
