  • Today, the FDA announced the availability of a final guidance for industry titled “Dietary Supplements:  New Dietary Ingredient Notification Procedures and Timeframes: Guidance for Industry.” This guidance is intended to help manufacturers and distributors of new dietary ingredients and dietary supplements prepare and submit new dietary ingredient notifications to the FDA.

  • On Monday, the FDA updated its list of select chemicals currently under the agency’s review to provide more insight on the status of the FDA’s post-market assessments of chemicals in the food supply. This updated list includes select food ingredients (including food and color additives), food contact substances, and contaminants under FDA review. The list also includes information about the status of our post-market assessments, including where we are in the risk assessment and management process, as well as our post-market actions. The FDA’s assessment of chemicals in the food supply is part of our commitment to food safety.
