An important reminder from Anaphylaxis Canada.
Susan may be able to mention a little more about this review. Gwen

From Anaphylaxis Canada:

Quote:
Health Canada has begun its consultation process regarding the proposed recommendations for precautionary labelling of priority allergens in prepackaged foods sold in Canada.

They are seeking consumer feedback on their proposals by February 10, 2010.

Please see their notice below for further details on how to provide your feedback to Health Canada directly.

For your information,
Anaphylaxis Canada


**********************************

From Health Canada:

Dear stakeholders interested in food and nutrition:

This is to inform you that Health Canada is beginning consultations on proposed actions to improve the current approach to precautionary labelling of priority allergens in prepackaged foods sold in Canada. To this end, we are seeking input on the possible options for precautionary allergen labelling from a wide variety of stakeholders, including health professionals, consumer/community associations, health/disease organizations, academia, industry, youth organizations, and other federal, provincial, territorial or municipal government representatives.

We invite you or another member of your organization to participate in the web-based consultation by reading the discussion document, Precautionary Labelling of Priority Allergens in Prepackaged Foods
http://www.hc-sc.gc.ca/fn-an/consultati ... ex-eng.php
available on Health Canada's Food Allergen Labelling Webpage http://www.hc-sc.gc.ca/fn-an/label-etiq ... ex-eng.php and answering the accompanying questions.

The consultation workbook can be completed and submitted on-line starting November 13 until February 10, 2010 inclusive.

A few people have been e-mailing Allergic Living, asking about this review.

The details are here: http://www.hc-sc.gc.ca/fn-an/consultati ... ex-eng.php

Susan, as you took part, do you know if there's a timeline on when we'll see actual new guidelines for the food industry?
