Under section 903(b)(2) of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (21 U.S.C. 393 (b)(2)), FDA is authorized to conduct research relating to foods and to conduct educational and public information programs relating to the safety of the Nation’s food supply. Under Title 42 of the Public Health Service Act (1944), FDA has authority to act to protect the public health. In 1998, FDA issued a guidance document entitled ‘‘Guide to Minimize E:\FR\FM\24MRN1.SGM 24MRN1
