The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is extending to March 5, 2007, the comment period for the notice of public hearing that appeared in the Federal Register of October 25, 2006 (71 FR 62400). In this notice of public hearing, FDA requested comments on how the agency should regulate conventional foods marketed as "functional foods" under its existing legal authority. The agency is extending the comment period in response to several requests for such an action to allow interested persons additional time to submit comments.
