So will we have a ban on those chemicals here in New York State?
Currently, there is a proposed bill in the New York State Senate. Senate Bill S6055A was proposed by New York Senator Brian Kavanagh and would ban certain food additives and food color additives starting in 2025.
Prohibits certain food additives and food color additives beginning January 1, 2025; provides that in an action to enforce compliance, the recognition by the federal Food and Drug Administration of any of these substances as safe may not be alleged as a defense.
The main difference between the proposed bill in New York and the one passed in California is that the law in California would begin in 2027, two years after the proposed start in New York.
The current bill in New York is being discussed in the New York Senate Agriculture Committee.
