Chapter 560. Rules and Regulations Pertaining to Labeling and Sale of Infant Formula

2VAC5-560-30. Supply scientific data establishing expiration date.

Upon the request of the commissioner or his authorized agent, the manufacturer shall, for each and every brand, variety, or formulation of infant formula intended to be sold or offered for sale in Virginia, submit scientific data establishing the expiration date to comply with 2VAC5-560-10. This data shall include, but is not limited to, physical, nutritional, and chemical properties, and rate of breakdown or loss of such properties. In the absence of empirical data on any specific formulation, the manufacturer shall provide scientific data to reasonably substantiate the expiration date. If the data submitted, in the opinion of the commissioner does not justify the expiration date, the commissioner shall prohibit the sale of the product until satisfactory data is supplied, or until a new expiration date consistent with the data is applied to the food product.
