November 8th Federal Register notice

FDA Opens 60-day Comment Period on Measure to Further Reduce Trans Fat in Processed Foods
November 7, 2013
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has made a preliminary determination that partially hydrogenated oils (PHOs), the primary dietary source of artificial trans fat in processed foods, are not “generally recognized as safe” (GRAS) for use in food.A final decision would mean that the use of these oils in the food supply would be phased out over a number of years. Removal of PHOs from the food supply could prevent up to 7,000 deaths from heart disease each year.
FDA has required industry to declare the amount of trans fat in food on the Nutrition Facts label since 2006. FDA data indicate that many processed foods have been reformulated to reduce the amount of trans fat since the requirement was instituted, but a substantial number of products still contain PHOs.
If, after reviewing comments received, FDA determines that PHOs are not GRAS, PHOs could not be used in foods unless authorized by a regulation. One of our core regulatory functions is ensuring that food, including all substances added to food, is safe.
As discussed in more detail in the Federal Register notice, during the 60-day public comment period, FDA is seeking data and information on a number of issues, including:
Whether FDA should finalize its tentative determination that PHOs are no longer GRAS; and How long it would take producers to reformulate food products to eliminate PHOs. The comment and submissionperiod starts November 8, 2013.
Submit comments electronically to the FDA docket on, use docket numberFDA-2013-N-1317.
To submit comments by mail, send to FDA at:
Division of Dockets Management (HFA-305)

Rockville, MD 20852

Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering
if you knew of any widgets I could add to my blog
that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates. I've been looking for a
plug-in like this for quite some time and was
hoping maybe you would have some experience with something
like this. Please let me know if you run into anything.
I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.

I was curious if you ever thought of changing the layout of your site?
Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people
could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two pictures.
Maybe you could space it out better?
