U.S. FDA Food Additive Petition amended

18 September 2009 1,794 views No Comment

WASHINGTON—The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is amending the 2001 filing notice for a food-additive petition filed by the National Fisheries Institute, to provide for the safe use of ionizing radiation for control of foodborne pathogens in crustaceans and processed crustaceans.

FDA received a letter from the National Fisheries Institute on July 16, 2009, asking it to modify the scope of the petition so that breading and batter are not included. FDA determined that this action does not individually or cumulatively have a significant effect on the human environment; therefore, neither an environmental assessment nor an environmental impact statement is required.
