A bipartisan bill to require major food allergens and gluten to be identified in medicationsTricia Thompson
A bipartisan bill (H.R.4263) to require allergen labeling in medications was introduced in the House by Representatives Dean Phillips (D-MN-3), Mikie Sherrill (D-NJ-11), Representative Michael Lawler (R-NY-17), Representative Mike Gallagher (R-WI-8) on June 21. This bill was also introduced in the Senate by Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) (S.2079). Gluten Free Watchdog is proud to endorse this bill to amend the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act to require the label of a drug intended for human use to identify each ingredient in such drug that is, or is derived directly or indirectly from, a major food allergen or a gluten-containing grain, and for other purposes.
Because this bill was introduced with bipartisan support in the House, we are hopeful that it gains traction.
