House Appropriations Committee Chair Rosa DeLauro (D-CT-03) today introduced the Toxic Free Food Act, new legislation to overhaul the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) process for determining the safety of chemicals used in the food supply. An array of chemicals is often added to foods to improve flavor, enhance appearance, or extend shelf life. For decades, FDA has allowed food and chemical manufacturers to designate such chemicals as ‘generally recognized as safe’ (GRAS), without FDA review or public notice. Consumer advocates have long criticized the current GRAS notification system due to issues of transparency, effectiveness, and ethics. The Toxic Free Food Act would require FDA to close the so-called GRAS loophole and make the industry’s chemical food additives subject to FDA approval.
