Food safety regulations among those targeted for removal
List includes food labeling, FSMA compliance and serving size guidance
A proposed list of federal regulations to be eliminated includes several food safety and information guidelines.
The list, proposed by Rep. Mark Matthews (R-N.C.), includes almost 300 rules, regulations and executive orders. Several of them deal with food safety and labeling information.
Among the items proposed for removal are:
9 CFR Parts 300, 530-534, 552, 555, 557, 559-561, Rule Establishing the Mandatory Inspection of Catfish and Catfish Products
21 CFR 101.9 and 101.36, Food Labeling: Revision of the Nutrition and Supplement Facts Labels
