MOFGA will sponsor a “Listening Session” with FDA representatives at the Augusta Armory on
August 19th between 9:30am and 12:30pm
This is the only session scheduled in Maine and one of only three in New England. This is an important opportunity for growers to communicate directly with FDA on the proposed rules.
The FDA has extended the public comment period, so those who cannot make the listening session can submit comments by Nov. 13, 2013.
Dave Colson, MOFGA’s Ag Services Director has put together a summary of the talking points that MOFGA has generated after reviewing the proposed rules that might be helpful.
