Jacobson at FDA Public Hearing on Sodium Reduction

Oral Testimony

ShareThis

This hearing is focusing on the issues raised by CSPI’s 2005 petition that called for the regulation of salt and other sodium-containing ingredients in processed foods. Jacobson expresses his hope that the witnesses testifying at the hearing and filing written comments will stimulate the FDA to fulfill its public health responsibility—and opportunity—by taking actions that will substantially lower sodium levels in food.
