New MHWFAC webinar decodes the FASTER Act

The new federal food labeling rules that take effect in 2023 add sesame to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration's list of major food allergens.  

Our moderator Kim Menzel and special guest Dr. Steven Gendel discuss the implications of the changes, and other food labeling information for patients and families with food allergy, in the latest MHWFAC webinar.  

Dr. Gendel has spent more than two decades developing science and policy in the FDA Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition. He was the first FDA Food Allergen Coordinator and contributed to the creation of agency policy, guidance documents, and regulations. He is an internationally recognized expert on food allergen management and on safety assessments for new food proteins.
