Audrae Erickson (President, Corn Refiners Association) writes in response to the article posted in The Rebel Yell:

“First and foremost, HFCS is a safe, natural, nutritive sweetener. Since 1983, the Food and Drug Administration has listed HFCS as “Generally Recognized as Safe” (known as GRAS status) for use in food.”

Yes, and as far back as I can remember we have experienced some pretty major mistakes when it came to US goverment agencies (specifically FDA) making safety claims before all the facts were in.
