National business briefs

Abstract:
Nanolabeling

Food, drugs, medical devices and cosmetics that contain minuscule engineered particles do not necessarily need special labeling to alert consumers, a federal task force recommends. The Food and Drug Administration should consider each product using nanotechnology case by case, the report being issued today said.

The FDA is considering how it should regulate these products, which are made with tiny particles measured by the nanometer, or billionth of a meter. By comparison, a human hair is about 80,000 nanometers across. Submicroscopic nanoparticles increasingly crop up in FDA-regulated products such as sunscreens, glare-reducing eyeglass coatings and antimicrobial wound dressings.
