What considerations could inform our approach? Please explain your reasoning, and provide data or other information that would support these considerations and any recommended approach. 2. In the guidance regarding allulose, we discuss factors that we considered when determining whether a sugar should be excluded from the declaration of ‘‘Total Sugars,’’ including pH of dental plaque after consumption, caloric value, and glycemic and insulinemic response. What, if any, other factors impact whether a sugar should be excluded from the declaration of ‘‘Total Sugars’’? Please provide any data or other information that supports your response. C. Declaration of Added Sugars 1. We could take one of various approaches to account for sugars that are metabolized differently than traditional sugars in the declaration of ‘‘Added Sugars.’’ For example, we could require them to be declared within the ‘‘Added Sugars’’ declaration, we could exclude them from the ‘‘Added Sugars’’ declaration, or we could adjust the gram amount of the ‘‘Added Sugars’’ or the %DV declaration based on their caloric contribution to the diet. What considerations could inform our approach? Please explain your reasoning, and provide data or other information that would support these considerations and any recommended approach. 2. In the guidance regarding allulose, we discuss factors that we considered when determining whether a sugar should be excluded from the declaration of ‘‘Added Sugars,’’ including caloric value and glycemic and insulinemic response. What other factors, if any, impact whether a sugar should be excluded from the declaration of ‘‘Added Sugars’’? Please provide any data or other information that supports your response. 3. We might adjust the %DV for ‘‘Added Sugars’’ for the U.S. population 4 years of age and older based on the caloric contribution of the sugar. For example: Assume a product contains 5 g of sucrose and 10 g of another sugar with a caloric value of 2 kcal/g per serving. Step 1. Calculate the Total Caloric Contribution of Sugars (amount of sucrose (g/serving) × caloric value VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:05 Oct 16, 2020 Jkt 253001 (kcal/g)) + (amount of other sugar (g/serving) × caloric value (kcal/g)) a. Sucrose: 5 g/serving × 4 kcal/g (caloric value of sucrose) = 20 kcal/ serving b. Other sugar: 10 g/serving × 2 kcal/ g (caloric value of other sugar) = 20 kcal/serving c. Total Caloric Contribution = 20 kcal/serving (sucrose) + 20 kcal/ serving (other sugar) = 40 kcal/ serving Step 2. Calculate Total Amount of Sugars Adjusted for the Total Caloric Contribution (Total Caloric Contribution of Sugars (kcal/ serving) ÷ 4 kcal/g)) Amount of Sugars Adjusted for Caloric Contribution = 40 kcal/ serving ÷ 4 kcal/g = 10 g-equivalent/ serving Step 3. Calculate %DV for Added Sugars (Amount of Sugars Adjusted for Caloric Contribution (gequivalent) ÷ 50 g/day (DV for Added Sugars for the general U.S. population 4 years of age and older) × 100)) %DV = (10 g-equivalent ÷ 50 g/day) × 100 = 20% What considerations are there with respect to adjusting the %DV declaration based on the caloric contribution of the sugar? D. Label Declarations 1. We currently require the disclosure of sugar alcohols and sugars that are metabolized differently than traditional sugars in the ingredient statement in accordance with § 101.4(a), but also allow for the voluntary declaration of sugar alcohols on the Nutrition Facts label (§ 101.9(c)(6)(iv)). Please provide any data or other information that we could consider when determining whether we should allow for the voluntary declaration on the Nutrition Facts label of sugars that are metabolized differently than traditional sugars. 2. Sugar alcohols fall into a separate category of labeling and are excluded from the ‘‘Total Sugars’’ and ‘‘Added Sugars’’ declarations. Please provide any data or other information that we could consider when determining whether sugars that are metabolized differently than traditional sugars should be combined with sugar alcohols into one declaration within the Nutrition Facts label. 3. If sugars that are metabolized differently than traditional sugars are excluded from the ‘‘Total Sugars’’ and ‘‘Added Sugars’’ declarations and are combined with sugar alcohols in a separate labeling category within the Nutrition Facts label, what names PO 00000 Frm 00039 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 would be scientifically appropriate for such a category? Please provide any data or other information that supports your recommendation. Dated: October 9, 2020. Lauren K. Roth, Acting Principal Associate Commissioner for Policy.

Health Resources and Services Administration


National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program; List of Petitions 
Received

AGENCY: Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), Department 
of Health and Human Services (HHS).

ACTION: Notice.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: HRSA is publishing this notice of petitions received under the 
National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (the Program), as required 
by the Public Health Service (PHS) Act, as amended. While the Secretary 
of HHS is named as the respondent in all proceedings brought by the 
filing of petitions for compensation under the Program, the United 
States Court of Federal Claims is charged by statute with 
responsibility for considering and acting upon the petitions.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: For information about requirements for 
filing petitions, and the Program in general, contact Lisa L. Reyes, 
Clerk of Court, United States Court of Federal Claims, 717 Madison 
Place NW, Washington, DC 20005, (202) 357-6400. For information on 
HRSA's role in the Program, contact the Director, National Vaccine 
Injury Compensation Program, 5600 Fishers Lane, Room 08N146B, 
Rockville, Maryland 20857; (301) 443-6593, or visit our website at: 
http://www.hrsa.gov/vaccinecompensation/index.html.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Program provides a system of no-fault 
compensation for certain individuals who have been injured by specified 
childhood vaccines. Subtitle 2 of Title XXI of the PHS Act, 42 U.S.C. 
300aa-10 et seq., provides that those seeking compensation are to file 
a petition with the United States Court of Federal Claims and to serve 
a copy of the petition to the Secretary of HHS, who is named as the 
respondent in each proceeding. The Secretary has delegated this 
responsibility under the Program to HRSA. The Court is directed by 
statute

[[Page 66339]]

to appoint special masters who take evidence, conduct hearings as 
appropriate, and make initial decisions as to eligibility for, and 
amount of, compensation.
    A petition may be filed with respect to injuries, disabilities, 
illnesses, conditions, and deaths resulting from vaccines described in 
the Vaccine Injury Table (the Table) set forth at 42 CFR 100.3. This 
Table lists for each covered childhood vaccine the conditions that may 
lead to compensation and, for each condition, the time period for 
occurrence of the first symptom or manifestation of onset or of 
significant aggravation after vaccine administration. Compensation may 
also be awarded for conditions not listed in the Table and for 
conditions that are manifested outside the time periods specified in 
the Table, but only if the petitioner shows that the condition was 
caused by one of the listed vaccines.
    Section 2112(b)(2) of the PHS Act, 42 U.S.C. 300aa-12(b)(2), 
requires that ``[w]ithin 30 days after the Secretary receives service 
of any petition filed under section 2111 the Secretary shall publish 
notice of such petition in the Federal Register.'' Set forth below is a 
list of petitions received by HRSA on September 1, 2020, through 
September 30, 2020. This list provides the name of petitioner, city and 
state of vaccination (if unknown then city and state of person or 
attorney filing claim), and case number. In cases where the Court has 
redacted the name of a petitioner and/or the case number, the list 
reflects such redaction.
    Section 2112(b)(2) also provides that the special master ``shall 
afford all interested persons an opportunity to submit relevant, 
written information'' relating to the following:
    1. The existence of evidence ``that there is not a preponderance of 
the evidence that the illness, disability, injury, condition, or death 
described in the petition is due to factors unrelated to the 
administration of the vaccine described in the petition,'' and
    2. Any allegation in a petition that the petitioner either:
    a. ``[S]ustained, or had significantly aggravated, any illness,
