FDA floats rule for tracing records on some foods, from some sources, some of the time

The FDA continues to chase a paperless paper trail with the announcement of a proposed food traceability rule. The agency will be taking comments on the proposal for two months.

The proposal is tentatively set to be published in the Federal Register on Wednesday. Comments will be accepted for 60 days after publication. Click here for directions on how to comment.

One part of the food industry that’s been in the outbreak hot seat in recent years was quick to respond to the Food and Drug Administration’s rulemaking announcement. Officials with the California Leafy Greens Marketing Agreement (LGMA) issued a “been there, doing that” statement just hours after the FDA announcement Monday.

Mrs. Santa Go well with On-line At Low Prices In India

Italian delicacies is in style in many nations, and notably in North America. Now you’re throwing stones at Creedence for the lesser of two evils. How so?

Every family in the tri-state area — or maybe just families near where I grew up, with easy access to a bakery outlet store — has what I call an “Entenmann’s trifecta.”

At my house, it was the Entenmann’s mini chocolate chip cookies, marshmallow-iced devil’s food cake, and the mini chocolate-iced doughnuts. For my friend Meaghan, it was the yellow cake with fudge icing, crumb cake, and full-sized chocolate-covered doughnuts. Ramon’s family preferred the butter loaf cake and crumb cake, while their third was interchangeable between cookies or doughnuts. My colleague Hillary’s family also went for the mini chocolate chip cookies, along with the crumb doughnuts; she remembers her grandmother plating the marshmallow-iced devil’s food … Read more
