FDA is recommending seizure or import refusal of ackee products
By Staff WriterNews Americas
hile many Jamaicannationals may look for-ward and always enjoy a mealwith ackee and saltfish, the U.S.Food and Drug Administration isrecommending seizure or importrefusal of canned, frozen andother ackee products.The ackee fruit which is har-vested from the ackee tree(Blighia sapida), is native to WestAfrica, but is also found inCentral and South America,many Caribbean countriesincluding Jamaica, and southernFlorida.It contains the toxin hypo-glycin A, which drops to negligi-ble levels in the edible portion of the fruit when it is fully ripe,making them safe to consume .However, the rind and seeds stillhave high levels of hypoglycin Awhen the fruit is fully ripe andshould not be consumed.When the product is improp-erly processed, concentrationscan rise above 100 parts per mil-lion (ppm) and pose a health risk.The ingestion of hypoglycinA may result in no symptoms orsymptoms that range from somevomiting to severe vomitingwith profound hypoglycemia,drowsiness, muscular exhaustion,prostration, and possibly comaand death.In issuing final guidance onenforcement criteria for Ackee,the FDA said its district officesmay detain, without physicalexamination, all ackee productsoffered for import.The exception will be forthose firms that are identified ona “Green List,” which accordingto the FDA have demonstratedthat they have food safety con-trols in place to ensure that onlyproperly ripened ackees, withoutseeds or rind, are included in fin-ished products. They are FruitProcessors Ltd. of Belize,Antillean Canning S.A. of Haitiand from Jamaica: Ashman FoodProducts Ltd., Canco Limited,Central Food Packers Ltd.,Double Deuce Jamaica Ltd.,Exotic Products JamaicaLimited, Island Packers,Southern Fruits & FoodProcessors Ltd., StanmarkProcessors Company Limited,Tijule Company Ltd. and WestBest Foods Limited.Canned, frozen and otherackee products are marketed inthe U.S., largely to people fromCaribbean cultures, and most of the products are imported fromJamaica, Belize and Haiti.In recent years, there hasbeen interest by a processor inFlorida to market ackee productsin interstate commerce.Persons wishing to commenton the final Compliance PolicyGuide (CPG) ruling may submitelectronic or written comments tothe FDA at 12420 ParklawnDrive, Rockville, MD 20857.

he transformational leader attemptsto give individualized considerationto the needs of followers to align the fol-lowers’ goals with the leader or organiza-tion’s goals. The transformational leaderis inspirational by creating an excitingpicture of the benefits from the futurestate that the leader is moving the grouptoward. Transformational leaders are alsorole models who become a source of ideal influence for followers. The desiredoutcome of this type of leadership is agroup of followers who are highly com-mitted and internally motivated toachieve the goals and objectives estab-lished by the leader.Transformational leadership con-trasts with the more traditional method of leadership known as transactional leader-ship. The transactional leader is envi-sioned as engaging in a series of encoun-ters or social transactions with followersin which the leader negotiates compli-ance to ideal behaviors. The transaction-al leader motivates followers by usingrewards and consequences, which areexternal motivators. As a result, the follower will becomestrongly committed to achieving theleader’s objectives only if the followerstrongly desire to obtain the reward oravoid the consequences. Followers donot generally consider transactional lead-ers to be ethical, although there is noth-ing inherently unethical about this lead-ership approach.Ethical leadership is often discussedin the context of organizations and thebehavior of organizational leaders.Employees, investors, and other organi-zational stakeholders expect leaders toact in an ethical manner and to avoidorganizational activities that may beharmful to society. To meet this expectation, organiza-tional leaders not only have to be ethicalin their personal behaviors but mustensure that the other members of theorganization behave ethically. Ethicalleaders should treat employees fairly andimpartially. In addition, ethical leadersshould ensure that the activities of theorganization do not unduly harm society.

hings are never easy for small-busi-ness owners in New York City and theother neighboring communities. No matterhow hard they try, there are always prob-lems to solve and fires to put out. New rules and policies includingincreasing fines and penalties are beingimplemented by the New York CityCouncil. Hundred of small-business ownersfrom our communities are finding it verydifficult to keep pace with new regula-tions. Bar owners, restaurant operators, bar-bers, hairstylists, home improvement con-tractors, daycare operators and other entre-preneurs are facing challenges as a resultof New York City Council policies.The Council is the lawmaking body of the City of New York and comprising 51members from 51 Council districtsthroughout the five boroughs. The Councilserves as a check against the Mayor in a"strong" Mayor-council governmentmodel. The Council monitors performance of city agencies and makes land use decisionsas well as legislating on a variety of otherissues. The Council has 35 committeeswith oversight of various functions of thecity government. For several decades members of ourcommunity have been voting for theDemocratic Party. In fact, the majority or48 members of the current City Councilmembers are Democrats, while only three(3) represent the Republicans. Nevertheless, despite their politicalaffiliations and support for the Democrats,it would appear that there is a disconnectbetween our local business operators andtheir City Council members. Our business operators complainedthat they are not being consulted on theCouncil’s new policies or regulations. It would appear that most of our entre-preneurs and business operators are clue-less about the running of the Council andare not benefiting from contracts or otherbusiness opportunities.Policies and regulations may be nec-essary, but they should not be hurting orhindering the very business that theyintend to protect and promote. As part of the solutions, members of the Council should communicate/connectmore with the people, while, businessowners should seek to better understandthe operations of the policy-makers.
