First, here is Pete Hardin's [ ] memo to me about the issue:

Subject: FDA's Nasty Proposal for "Mystery Milk" (and aspartame) for ice cream.

Enclosed is our Nov 2005 issue. We're hitting hard on the FDA proposal that would change ice cream standards. FDA, following the ice cream manufacturers' lobby, wants to put "milk from species other than cows" in our ice cream. Also, FDA has nebulous language in the proposal by which the agency hopes to defuse the Aspartame/NutraSweet advisory label on the front panel of the package.

Betty...HELP!!! Would you please advise your members via your Web site of these dangerous proposals. Consumers deserve better than "mystery milk" and undisclosed Aspartame/NutraSweet in their ice cream.

The public comment period ends on December 27, 2005. We have full details, including "talking points" and an entire printing of FDA's proposal in the Federal Register available at our Web site:
Thank you for your help.

Pete Hardin -


From the MilkWeed:

Register your comments with FDA (Docket #2003-P-0132)

Upset with the proposal changes in ice cream regulations? Contact FDA before December 27, 2005 and let the agency know your opinion on some or all of these proposal changes that would "dumb down" the quality, taste and safety of our ice cream.

Objection #5: Regs would subvert aspartame/NutraSweet Labeling FDA's proposed ice cream regulations would apparently do away with rules that now require notice to consumers on the front panel of a food product that the product contains Aspartame/NutraSweet. That artificial sweetener, a neurological toxin, is one of the most controversial food additive issues in the history of U.S. food safety regulations. A growing number of consumers avoid products with Aspartame/NutraSweet. Consumption of ice cream and other frozen desserts could be harmed, if current Aspartame labeling rulees are disguised.

FDA states in the Federal Register: "If the food is subject to the requirements of paragraph (c) (2) (ii) of this section or if it contains an artificial flavor not simulating the characterizing flavor, the label shall also bear the words, "artificial flavor added..."

1) BEWARE! This language opens the door for disguising the presence of Aspartame/NutraSweet. FDA lists Aspartame as an artificial flavor. This language would take away current rules that require listing of Aspartame on the front panel of ice cream packaging. Aspartame is a dangerous neurotoxin with many recognized negative health effects!




I hereby declare Peace on war!
