A CALL TO ACTION

The Utah Food Allergy Network is very concerned about the announcement by the FDA on Friday, May 22, 2020, titled: Temporary Flexibility Policy Regarding Certain Labeling Requirements for Foods for Humans During COVID-19 Pandemic. While FALCPA protects labeling for those with the Top 8 allergens, we need to protect those with less common food allergies, Eosinophilic Disorders, Mast Cell Disease, FPIES, Celiacs, IBD, and other conditions requiring food restrictions.

What you can do:

Please share your concerns, questions, and comments directly on the FDA's website: https://www.regulations.gov/comment?D=FDA-2020-D-1139-0009.

Write to your congressional and state representative- ask for this to change and revert.

Call the Consumer Complaint Coordinator for Utah at 303-236-3044.

Safety and health must come first! Please do your part in representing the millions of Americans with food allergies.
