The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued draft guidance for industry about the agency’s current thinking regarding the disclosure of small amounts of nutrients and dietary ingredients on nutrition labeling. The document focuses on how the agency intends to use its enforcement discretion when a conflict occurs between compliance with § 101.9(c) and § 101.9(g) of Title 21 of the Code of Federal Regulations such that compliance with both sections is not possible. FDA is also considering whether to revise both sections and, if so, may reportedly amend or withdraw the draft guidance. Those wishing to submit comments on the draft guidance must do so by September 28, 2015. See Federal Register, July 30, 2015.
