WASHINGTON -- Representatives from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration's food safety and applied nutrition center will host a seminar on calorie disclosure compliance at the National Automatic Merchandising Association's Fly-In on July 12 here.

With more than 260 registered participants representing 42 states, the Fly-In takes place July 12-13. It's NAMA's largest advocacy event in the nation's capital.

The FDA session will cover vending machine compliance with the final rule on calorie disclosure, taking effect Dec. 1. FDA speakers will focus on reviewing the rule's definitions and requirements for compliance. Participants will have the opportunity to discuss issues related to compliance in an effort to work together to meet the Dec. 1 deadline.

"We'd like to thank the FDA for leading this very valuable session for our Fly-In participants," said NAMA senior vice-president of government affairs Eric Dell. "This is an exclusive opportunity for attendees to interact face-to-face with FDA officials and have their questions on calorie disclosure answered firsthand by the experts."
