I’m keynoting the workship on Food, Ethics, Politics at 4:00 with a reception to follow. My talk, “”Food, Ethics, Politics: The View from 2022,” will be in the Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment, Maeder Hall, Room 002. This event is part of the University Center for Human Values (UCHV) Conferences, Workshops & Special Events. To register to attend, click here.
Forget previous post: that’s not what happened
Jessica Leighton, the FDA senior science advisory whose speech was quoted in Food Chemical News (I wrote about this yesterday) writes to tell me that she has been badly misquoted about the FDA’s plans for food labels.
The reporter, she says, appears to have mixed up a variety of talks or questions from the audience to the panel.
I said nothing about caffeine or “natural.” I don’t remember mentioning the percent of key ingredients in parentheses after the ingredient name either. I also said we are looking into added sugars but did not say we are doing anything about them.
I am taking her word for it and have taken down the post. Apologies to all.
