The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is still seeking comments and information from the public and other interested parties about nutrition labeling in the wake of a live hearing April 28.
The FDA is seeking public participation as it deliberates about how to enhance the usefulness to consumers of point-of-purchase nutrition information.
This includes information on the main display panel of food products, called "front-of-pack" labeling, as well as on tags at retail shelves. The FDA is seeking to learn more about the extent to which consumers notice, use and understand such nutrition symbols. The agency is accepting comments until July 28, 2010.
