If you are a producer of organic produce or a manufacturer/processor of organic food intended for human consumption, FDA’s proposed food safety regulations will likely impact you. Once implemented, FDA’s proposed food safety requirements will significantly impact organic agricultural practices for decades to come. The comment deadline is this Friday, November 15, before midnight Eastern. OTA urges its members to weigh in on several key issues. To assist the comment process, OTA’s draft comments and talking points on both rules are now posted online. We have also outlined detailed instructions along with sample letters for submitting comments to FDA Online, or written comments via U.S. mail. Submit your comments today! Please contact Gwendolyn Wyard, OTA’s Regulatory Director for Organic Standards and Food Safety, if you have any questions or concerns.
