AU: Consultation on irradiation labelling requirements begins
Food Standards Australia New Zealand: Food Standards Australia New Zealand (FSANZ) today released a consultation paper on the existing labelling requirements for irradiated foods. FSANZ Chief Executive Officer Steve McCutcheon said ministers responsible for food regulation had asked FSANZ to review the requirements in response to a labelling review recommendation.
“It’s important to note that no change to requirements is being proposed at this stage,” Mr McCutcheon said. “FSANZ is seeking submissions on a range of technical and economic issues related to the mandatory requirements and how information about food irradiation is communicated to consumers.”
