21 CFR Part 172

[Docket No. 1999F-0719]

Food Additives Permitted for Direct Addition to Food for Human 
Consumption; Olestra; Correction

AGENCY: Food and Drug Administration, HHS.

ACTION: Final rule; correction.


SUMMARY:  The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is correcting a final 
rule that appeared in the Federal Register of May 24, 2004 (69 FR 
29428). The final rule amended the food additive regulations to allow 
for the safe use of olestra as a replacement for fats and oils in 
prepackaged, unpopped popcorn kernels that are ready-to-heat. The 
initial action was in response to a food additive petition (FAP) filed 
by the Procter and Gamble Co. The final rule published with an 
inadvertent error. This document corrects that error.

EFFECTIVE DATE: July 7, 2004.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Joyce A. Strong, Office of Policy (HF-
27), Food and Drug Administration, 5600 Fishers Lane, Rockville, MD 
20857, 301-827-7010.
