Dietary Guidelines Wait for Omnibus to Pass

Dec 16, 2015

IDFA and others in the food industry were expecting the 2015 Dietary Guidelines for Americans to be released last Friday, but it appears the Guidelines have taken a backseat to the omnibus negotiations in Congress.

With agreement on the spending bill now complete and a final vote expected within the next few days, IDFA expects the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the Department of Health and Human Services to release the Guidelines either this week or next.
