We have determined that the above-named project for which you have requested review
meets the criteria for exemption as set out in the relevant Federal and State guidelines.
Specifically, the activity is research involving only taste and food quality evaluation or a
food consumer acceptance study in which wholesome foods without additives or FDA-
approved ingredients/EPA-approved levels of contaminants are consumed, covered under
45 CFR 46.101(b)(6). The information to be obtained must be recorded in such a manner
that human subjects cannot be identified directly or through identifiers linked to the
subjects and disclosure of the subjects’ responses outside the research would not
reasonably place the subjects at risk of criminal or civil liability or be damaging to the
subjects’ financial standing, employability, or reputation.

If your protocol should change, please submit a request for modification. Your approval
ends on 12/10/07. If you wish to continue your research past then, you must request a
continuance at least 30 days prior to that date.

Best of luck with your project!
