Citizen Petition Seeking to Facilitate State and Local Exemptions from Federal Food Labeling Laws

The Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI) and the Philadelphia Department of Public Health (Philadelphia DPH) respectfully submit this petition requesting that the Commissioner of Food and Drugs amend the regulation governing State and local petitions for exemption from 
the preemptive effects of the Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act’s (FDCA) nutrition and menu labeling standards. A more accessible and appropriate path to exemption would enable States and localities to pass innovative food labeling laws that advance public health.
