I. Background Back to Top
We are announcing the availability of CPG Sec. 550.050 Canned Ackee, Frozen Ackee, and Other Ackee Products—Hypoglycin A Toxin. The CPG is being issued consistent with our good guidance practices regulation (21 CFR 10.115). The CPG represents our current thinking on this topic. It does not create or confer any rights for or on any person and does not operate to bind FDA or the public. An alternative approach may be used if such approach satisfies the requirements of the applicable statutes and regulations.
In the Federal Register of November 8, 2012 (77 FR 67013), we announced the availability of draft CPG Sec. 550.050 Canned Ackee, Frozen Ackee, and Other Ackee Products—Hypoglycin A Toxin and gave interested parties an opportunity to submit comments by January 7, 2013, for us to consider before beginning work on the final version of the CPG. We received one comment that did not pertain to the draft CPG. We are issuing the final version of the CPG with editorial changes, but with no substantive changes.
The CPG announced in this notice finalizes the draft CPG dated November 2012.
