Last Day to Submit Comments on Proposed Dietary Guidelines

Thu, 07 May 2015 12:03:36 CDT

Last Day to Submit Comments on Proposed Dietary Guidelines Cattlemen have one day left to submit comments on the nation's proposed dietary guidelines. Public comments can be submitted through Friday (May 8) through the Federal Register. The Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee released their scientific report, which serves as a recommendation to the Secretaries of Health and Human Services (HHS) and the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) in their development of the final 2015 Dietary Guidelines for Americans.

The Texas Cattle Feeders Association (TCFA) emailed members urging them to comment on the proposal and urge the Secretaries of HHS and USDA to reject the unsound dietary guidelines. TCFA told members to submit comments to reject this flawed report and to put lean meats back into the recommendation of an overall healthy dietary pattern, as it currently exists in the 2010 Dietary Guidelines.

"At a minimum, this report is inconsistent, and if adopted will lead to conflicting dietary advice that could be detrimental to the health of our nation and our industry," TCFA stated.

The final 2015 Dietary Guidelines are expected to be finalized and published by the end of 2015. To view the Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee’s full report, click here.
