FDA Says It’s Not Developing Rules On Sodium Content In U.S. Food Supply

April 20, 2010: 05:35 PM EST
The U.S. FDA, while acknowledging that America’s intake of sodium is too high and could be causing serious national health problems like high blood pressure, nevertheless denied a news report that it had begun a process of regulating sodium content in foods. “The FDA is not currently working on regulations nor has it made a decision to regulate sodium content in foods at this time,” the agency said in a statement, referring to a “mistaken impression” left by a Washington Post article. The agency said it would review the recently-issued recommendations of the Institute of Medicine regarding sodium content, and would work with other federal agencies and the food industry to reduce sodium levels in the U.S. food supply.
