"Our team is always working to stay on top of FDA actions affecting food labels."

– Karen Duester

Dear Food Label News readers,

After the October issue of Food Label News was completed for publication, Food Consulting Company learned that FDA posted "Guidance for Industry: Questions and Answers Regarding Food Allergens, including the Food Allergen Labeling and Consumer Protection Act of 2004" on its website: This October 5, 2005, document is presented in Q&A format and contains answers to many questions that Food Consulting Company clients are asking.

Food Label News will address this document in the November 4, 2005, issue. Food Consulting Company alerts you now, since the compliance date is quickly approaching. Companies may submit outstanding food allergen labeling questions to by October 21, 2005. Food Consulting Company staff will consider these questions for response in the November issue of Food Label News based on the interest of all readers.

Please share this newsletter in its entirety, including subscription and copyright information.
