GOVERNMENT AFFAIRS & EDUCATION COMMITTEE UPDATE
IFSA Government Affairs and Education Committee Leadership had a call with the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) in November to assist in clarifying allergen labeling requirements for crew meals, international flights departing from US, and complimentary foods covered and wrapped for sanitation or transportation purposes. We have submitted examples of complimentary food packaging to the Agency at their request, and FDA has indicated they will get back to us in the near future with updates and additional clarifications. We will update you as we learn more. Please remember to keep an eye on our Food Safety Updates page as well as our members-only LinkedIn Group for news on food safety concerns.
