FTC NUTRITION ADVERTISING LEGISLATION "MAY BE NECESSARY"

This article was originally published in The Tan Sheet

Executive Summary

FTC NUTRITION ADVERTISING LEGISLATION "MAY BE NECESSARY," Reps. Joe Moakley (D-Mass.) and Al Swift (D-Wash.) noted in a recent letter to the Federal Trade Commission. While acknowledging FTC's nutrition advertising "enforcement policy statement" as a "good-faith effort to achieve harmonization" with FDA's Nutrition Labeling & Education Act regs, the two congressman said they "remain uncertain as to whether further legislation may still be necessary in order to provide the FTC with both the scope and efficiencies of directed statutory authority commensurate to that provided to the FDA under the NLEA."
