FDA is extending the deadline to receive public comments on updates to the Toxicological Principles for the Safety Assessment of Food Ingredients (Redbook) through May 11, 2015. FDA extended the comment period by 180 days in response to public requests following an October 30, 2014 notice in the Federal Register, as well as a December 9, 2014 public meeting. The Redbook provides guidance to industry regarding the information used by FDA's Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition to evaluate the safety of food and color additives. FDA is proposing to expand the scope of the Redbook to include chemical safety assessments. For additional information and to submit comments, click here.
