Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ) supports CSPI's petition on added sugars

In this letter to the FDA, the senator writes:

"Added sugars reduction targets are a critical opportunity for the FDA to take action to help Americans reduce their average added sugars intake and to guide the food industry towards gradual, feasible added sugars reductions in foods and beverages over time.

I urge the FDA to grant this petition and take an important step towards realizing the Administration’s commitment to reducing added sugars and addressing the crisis of diet-related diseases."
