Public Meetings on Agricultural Biotechnology Education and Outreach

The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) reminds you there will be two public meetings to discuss the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) Agricultural Biotechnology Education and Outreach Initiative. This initiative calls for the FDA to work with USDA to provide education and outreach to the public on agricultural biotechnology and food and animal feed ingredients derived from biotechnology. The purpose of the meetings is to provide the public an opportunity to share information, experiences, and suggestions to help inform the development of this education and outreach initiative.  

The FDA is also accepting public comments on questions listed in the Federal Register Notice. Comments may be submitted through November 17, 2017.
