Food safety law makes one wonder

February, 2011

Eric F. Greenberg | Attorney-at-Law

A new food safety law is imminent at press time-unless it isn’t. The U.S. Senate passed its version over a year after the House passed it, and then it got sidetracked by procedural and political squabbles into mid-December. Assuming a bill gets made into law, perhaps even by the time you read this, and assuming it contains many of the key provisions that have been included so far, there is much to discuss, even as there will be even more once the bill is made law.

What do PFAS Actions Tell us About State Regulatory Officials?

What do PFAS Actions Tell us About State Regulatory Officials?

By Eric F. Greenberg, Attorney-at-law

Last month we looked at some recent FDA action against perfluoroalkyl and polyfluoroalkyl substances, aka PFAS, some of which are used in grease-resistant coatings in paper and paperboard. Turns out, there’s a fair amount of state-level action as well.

For one thing, the organization who brought us the model toxics law back in the 1990s that prohibited intentional use of four heavy metals in packaging, is considering amending their model law to include PFAS and phthalates.
