House Approves Bill for FDA to Override State Labeling Laws

The US House passed allowing the FDA to invalidate state’s food and labeling laws if they’re stricter than federal standards.

Exemptions could be granted if the Food and Drug Administration determines they are needed and they
would not unduly burden interstate commerce.

We’d hate to think that fully informing customers about a product’s contents might unduly inconvenience companies.
