07:21 EDTJNJGeneric ADHD drugs still sold despite FDA non-equivalance finding, NYT reports
The FDA announced last November that two generic versions of Johnson & Johnson's (JNJ) Concerta ADHD drug, one made by Mallinckrodt (MNK) and the other by UCB, could no longer be considered the equivalent of the branded drug after tests and analyses suggested that their effectiveness began to wear off much more quickly, but the drugs are still being sold despite an FDA mandated deadline having passed for the companies to either prove the drugs were equivalent or remove them from the market, said The New York Times. The report noted a third generic product, sold by Actavis (AGN), was found to be equivalent to the branded Concerta. Reference Link

09:22 EDTMDLZFDA gives food makers three years to remove partially hydrogenated oils
The FDA announced it has finalized its determination that partially hydrogenated oils, or PHOs, the primary dietary source of artificial trans fat in processed foods, are not “generally recognized as safe” or GRAS for use in human food. Food manufacturers will have three years to remove PHOs from products. In 2013, the FDA made a tentative determination that PHOs could no longer be considered GRAS and is finalizing that determination after considering public comments. The FDA has set a compliance period of three years. This will allow companies to either reformulate products without PHOs and/or petition the FDA to permit specific uses of PHOs. Following the compliance period, no PHOs can be added to human food unless they are otherwise approved by the FDA. Publicly traded food manufacturers include Mondelez (MDLZ), Kraft Foods (KRFT), General Mills (GIS), Hershey (HSY), PepsiCo (PEP), Kellogg (K), ConAgra (CAG) and Campbell Soup (CPB).
