NATIONAL FOOD PROCESSORS ASSOCIATION ISSUES STATEMENT ON 'DELANEY CLAUSE'

 WASHINGTON, Feb. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- The National Food Processors Association issued the following statement in response to the Supreme Court's announcement earlier this week that the court will not review an Appeals Court decision on the Environmental Protection Agency's enforcement of the Delaney Clause to the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act:
 We are disappointed but not surprised that the Supreme Court will not review the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals Delaney Clause decision. Congress must now act to repeal the Delaney Clause and replace it with updated, responsible food safety legislation.
 NFPA will actively support congressional attempts to modernize and improve food safety legislation. Last year, the Bruce-Bliley bill, which NFPA and other food industry organizations supported, attracted more than 140 co-sponsors. We will do all that we can to encourage Congress to introduce and pass similar legislation this year.
 NFPA is the scientific voice of the food industry, concentrating exclusively on food issues. The association's 500 member companies produce the nation's processed-packaged fruits and vegetables, meat and poultry, seafood, juices and drinks, and specialty products.
