I'm trying to find something that was posted on this forum, but I have no idea where.

It was posted by some guy that works for the Canadian Government (CFIA?) regarding new labeling laws in Canada. And I think Karen cross posted it somewhere. But I can't find either.

Anyone know what I'm talking about and where it is?

Thannk you. :D That is what I was looking for.

Unfortunately, I still don't really understand what is being proposed. Are they talking about labelling actual ingredients? Or is there a possibility that *may contains* is going to become compulsory labeling? Anyone know?

As far as I know, there are no concrete plans to have any kind of national legislation or even guidelines regarding "may contain" statements.

I believe that what the new legislation will require is plain labelling for the 9 priority allergens in Canada. So, for example, once this legislation is in effect, manufacturers must make it clear that casein = dairy.

Lance - can you confirm this?
