13:39 EDTTSN, DOLE, K, SJM, SAFM, FDP, CPB, HSY, SFD, CQB, HNZ, HRL, MDLZ, ECL, GIS, UL, KFT, UNFDA proposes new standards for foodborne illness prevention, produce safety
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced earlier that it proposed two new food safety rules that will help prevent foodborne illness. The proposed rules implement the Food Safety Modernization Act, or FSMA, and are available for public comment for the next 120 days, the FDA said. These two FSMA rules are part of an integrated reform effort that focuses on prevention and addresses the safety of foods produced domestically and imported, with additional rules to be published shortly. The first rule proposed would require makers of food to be sold in the United States, whether produced at a foreign- or domestic-based facility, to develop a formal plan for preventing their food products from causing foodborne illness. The rule would also require them to have plans for correcting any problems that arise. The FDA is proposing that many food manufacturers be in compliance with the new preventive controls rules one year after the final rules are published in the Federal Register but small and very small businesses would be given additional time. The FDA also seeks public comment on the second proposed rule, which proposes enforceable safety standards for the production and harvesting of produce on farms. This rule proposes science- and risk-based standards for the safe production and harvesting of fruits and vegetables. The FDA is proposing that larger farms be in compliance with most of the produce safety requirements 26 months after the final rule is published in the Federal Register. Small and very small farms would have additional time to comply, and all farms would have additional time to comply with certain requirements related to water quality. The FDA seeks public comment on this proposal, it stated.

13:35 EDTMDLZ, HSYHershey melts after Goldman downgrade
Shares of chocolate maker Hershey (HSY) are falling after Goldman Sachs lowered its rating on the stock to a Sell. WHAT'S NEW: After the market closed last night, Goldman Sachs downgraded Hershey to Sell from Neutral, saying the stock is "priced for perfection" and that the company's cycle of strong earnings growth will end. Goldman lowered its price target for the stock to $90 from $105. Goldman Sachs analysts Jason English, Sean King and Manpreet Sethl were cautious on Hershey, saying that they expect the company's domestic momentum to fade. Goldman lowered its earnings per share estimates for Hershey's fiscal years 2014 through 2016 by 3%-6% to reflect lower sales and margin projections. While they said that they still perceive Hershey as a "best-in-breed company" whose international momentum will continue, the analysts believe expectations for the company are on the verge of turning more negative. OTHERS TO WATCH: Other companies in the chocolate industry include Nestle (NSRGY) and Mondelez (MDLZ), which owns Cadbury. PRICE ACTION: During afternoon trading, shares of Hershey fell $2.57 or $2.53%, to $99.15.
