Smart choices program has been suspended
"We welcome the FDA's interest in developing uniform front-of-package and shelf-labeling criteria," said Mike Hughes, chair, Smart Choices Program and vice president for science and public policy at the Keystone Center. "The Smart Choices Program shares that exact goal, and was designed to provide a voluntary front-of-package labeling program that could promote informed food choices and help consumers construct healthier diets. We continue to believe the Smart Choices Program is an important step in the right direction."
I think this is impressive. The public and the media cried out. The FDA listened and acted. The Smart Choices people made a smart choice. Nice.
