Executive Summary

"The estimate of the amount of time needed, not exceeding 12 months, to exhaust the number of existing labels for all products identified that the firm is requesting to use," is one factor CFSAN will take into account when reviewing requests for extensions on compliance with the trans fat labeling final rule, according to a 1guidance released by the Center for Food Safety & Applied Nutrition.

In order to be considered, the requests must be for product labels that otherwise comply with FDA labeling requirements. The product also must not contain more than 0.5 g trans fat per labeled serving. The labeling guidance was released Dec. 14 (1"The Tan Sheet" Dec. 12, 2005, In Brief)...
