FDA Pilot Program Oral Feedback: Chicago, IL

The Institute of Food Technologists (IFT) will lead two pilot programs for the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) designed to test and study various product tracing systems. IFT wants to engage as many stakeholders as possible, from all disciplines, in the process of completing the tracing pilot programs. While it's difficult to meet with every person – IFT is committed to ensuring that all voices are heard and all perspectives are considered in our analysis and recommendations. IFT is currently developing questions to solicit input in specific aspects of the study.

The following provided oral feedback at the stakeholder input session held on November 2, 2011 in Chicago, IL.
