FDA gives 2018 compliance date for labeling regulations
Bakingbusiness.com
The Food and Drug Administration Dec. 9 gave Jan. 1, 2018, as the uniform compliance date for food labeling regulations that are issued between Jan. 1, 2015, and Dec. 31, 2016. An FDA proposed rule to make changes to the Nutrition Facts Panel potentially may become a final rule during that two-year time period, but the rule would not automatically have a Jan. 1, 2018, compliance date.

Congressional hearing looks at FDA's role in GE food regulation
Food Safety News
The question of how the U.S. Food and Drug Administration should approach the regulation of genetically engineered food — and particularly its labeling, or lack thereof — was the topic of a hearing by the House Energy & Commerce Committee. The biggest question of the day: Should a federal law be passed to regulate consumer information about GE foods, either by requiring a label for foods produced with GE technology, or by restricting the ability of states to create their own GE labeling rules?
