Food Substances Generally Recognized as Safe

The Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act gives authority to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) of HHS to oversee the safety of food additives. The FDA makes determinations as to whether a food substance has been shown to be "generally recognized as safe" for the intended use by a consensus of expert opinion. The FDA can take enforcement action to stop distribution of foods that contain an unlawful food additive. This search includes some related food safety actions of the Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of Agriculture.
