Two US States Propose Ban on Food Additives

Legislators in the states of California and New York in the US are scrutinizing several common food additives.

Newly proposed bills in the US states of California and New York are putting several common food additives under scrutiny. State legislators are seeking to ban the manufacture and sale of products containing certain additives that have been linked to potential health concerns. The additives in question are used primarily in the production of carbonated beverages, candy, and baked goods. The additives proposed for ban include brominated vegetable oil and titanium dioxide.

Many experts view this as a direct attack on the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and its authority to make food safety decisions based on credible science. There are concerns that politicians are attempting to make food safety decisions without the ability to fully understand the science and risk assessments required. The FDA is tasked with the role of evaluating science and making decisions to protect all consumers.

If passed, these bills would take effect in California and New York in 2025.
