FDA's Crackdown On Nutrition Labeling
I'm spending the morning at the Atlantic Food Summit at the Newseum, and I'll be hosting a panel on the next era in food safety. We got quite a gift from the quantum wave function this morning in the news that the FDA launched a major crackdown on misleading nutrition labeling. One of my guests will be the director of the FDA's Food Safety and Applied Nutrition division, Dr. Stephen Sundlof. Joining him will be Erik Olson of Pew, Dr. Elizabeth Westring, the VP for quality and regulatory operations at General Mills, and Alan Wilson, chair, CEO and president of McCormick and Company, the world's largest spicemaker. I have lots of questions, and I hope to report back later this afternoon with plenty of answers.
