FDA to Crackdown on Non-dairy Products Labeling

July 20, 2018 – -The Almond Alliance will be sending a letter immediately to the FDA Commissioner to express our concern that it appears the FDA has made a decision regarding the use of the term “milk” for non-dairy products without providing the almond industry with a voice in the FDA process. The Almond Alliance intends to counter the FDA and Trump Administration’s decision to crack down on the use of the term “milk” for non-dairy products.  FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb said his agency will soon issue a guidance document outlining changes in so-called “standards of identify” policies for marketing milk. The almond industry will ,of course, participate in the FDA’s official process – but it doesn’t mean we won’t express our frustration and views that “we do not like it.”  There will be more to come pertaining to our discussions with FDA.
