The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has apparently filed a petition submitted by the Dean Foods Co. and the WhiteWave Foods Co. “proposing that the food additive regulations be amended to provide for the expanded safe uses of vitamin D2 and vitamin D3 as nutrient supplements in food.” In particular, the petition seeks to amend (i) 21 C.F.R. 172.39 “to provide for the safe use of vitamin D2 as a nutrient supplement in edible plant-based food products intended for use as alternatives to milk and milk products,” and (ii) 21 C.F.R. 172.80 “to provide for the safe use of vitamin D3 as a nutrient supplement in milk at levels higher than those currently permitted.” FDA has also noted that because the action will not have any significant effect on the human environment, there is no need to undertake an environmental assessment or prepare an environmental impact statement.
