USA: Kraft gets permit extension for market testing
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has granted an extension of a temporary permit issued to Kraft Foods to market test products designated as "100% Grated Parmesan Cheese" that deviate from the US standards of identity for Parmesan cheese and grated cheese. The extension is said to allow the permit holder to continue to collect data on consumer acceptance of the products while the agency takes action on a petition to amend the standard of identity for Parmesan.
