FDA는 연기된 식품 안전 규칙과 관련한 소송에 대한 기각 방안을 찾고 있다. The FDA is seeking dismissal of lawsuit over delayed food safety rules. The agency stated that though it was behind schedule in modernizing food safety regulations as set out in a law signed in January 2011, its broad role in regulating a $450 billion domestic and imported food business requires additional time.

The motion comes in response to a lawsuit filed in August by the Center for Food Safety and the Center for Environmental Health, both non-profit public interest advocacy groups, reported Reuters.

FDA is proposing to revoke the standards of identity for artificially sweetened jelly, preserves and jams, primarily in response to a citizen petition submitted by the International Jelly and Preserve Association. FDA stated it is taking this action because the agency tentatively concluded that the standards are obsolete and unnecessary in light of regulations for foods named by use of a nutrient content claim and a standardized term. FDA found nutrient content claims such as "low calorie" or "reduced sugar" better characterize the nutritional profile of the affected fruit spreads than does the regulated term "artificially sweetened."

For the first time, scientists have figured out how to determine the age of a lobster, by counting its rings like a tree, according to The Associated Press.

Before now, scientists deduced a lobster's age judging by size and other variables. But it's now known that lobsters and other crustaceans, such as crabs and shrimp, grow one ring per year in hidden-away internal spots, reported Bloomberg Businessweek. Full Story
