The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is correcting a proposed rule that appeared in the Federal Register of April, 6, 2011 (76 FR 19238). To implement the vending machine labeling provisions of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 (Affordable Care Act), FDA proposed requirements for providing calorie information for certain articles of food sold from vending machines. The document published with several errors including an incorrect contact phone number and an incomplete address. This document corrects those errors.
