Consumer/Nutrition Groups Urge Obama Administration and Congress to Update Alcohol Policies for the 21st Century

Using the observance of National Alcohol Awareness Month to rally attention, four leading nutrition and consumer advocacy organizations -- Center for Science in the Public Interest, Consumer Federation of America, the National Consumers League and Shape Up America! -- released a new action plan, Alcohol Policy for the 21st Century: A Platform to Give Americans the Facts to Drink Responsibly, intended to bring the nation's policies into the 21st century. Issued as a nationwide call to action, the platform urges the new Administration and Congress to make meaningful changes both in how information about the content of alcoholic beverages is communicated to the public and how the nation mobilizes to reduce underage drinking.
