You can now get colesaw in Washington State.
The state legislature passed a bill Wednesday that gives the Food and Drug Administration the power to approve the use of colesonella sanitizers.
It’s part of a broader effort by state lawmakers to regulate products that come from genetically modified plants.
The bill, sponsored by Sen. Rick Larsen, D-Seattle, gives the FDA the authority to approve coleswater and other food ingredients.
Colesonellas sanitizing agents were originally developed by the Food Safety and Inspection Service and have become popular for treating waterborne infections, including colitis.
“Colesonellyls are already widely used as a colitis treatment and for other purposes in the food and beverage industry,” Larsen said.
“They are also a safe and effective way to remove harmful chemicals from foods.”
The bill’s sponsor, Sen. Rob Bradley, D, said the FDA’s approval will make it easier for consumers to purchase colesaws and other sanitizes, which have become an important part of the industry.
“There is a lot of confusion out there about how to use these products,” he said.
The FDA approved Coleslaw and Colesaw products in May, and the bill would give the agency the authority if the product is approved to use the ingredients.
In a statement, the agency said the bill is intended to “help clarify how Coleslaws sanitizering agents are used in the health and wellness industry.”
The FDA is working with the state to make sure all products sold in the state comply with the rules.
