FDA Extends Comment Period for Plant-Based Dairy Labeling

November 21, 2018 from the Specialty Food News and FDA:

"The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has extended the comment period for a notice related to the use of dairy food names like "milk," "cultured milk," "yogurt," and "cheese" for plant-based products. The agency will accept public comment through Jan. 28, 2019."
"The comments are meant to inform the agency's development of an approach to the labeling of plant-based products that consumers may substitute for dairy foods."
