Andrew G. Ebert is an Officer of the
Kellen Company, since the company is employee owned, he owns stock in the
company as well.
In 1992, FDA appointed both Andrew G. Ebert,
Ph.D., IGTC chairman, and Kristin McNutt, Ph.D. ,paid spokesperson for the IGTC,
to the FDA Food Advisory Committee. As a food-industry pharmacologist and
toxicologist, Ebert has provided scientific and technical expertise for programs
of many associations managed by The Kellen Company.
His nomination to
the FDA Food Advisory Committee did not refer to his affiliation with the IGTC,
but listed him only as Senior Vice President of The Kellen Company. Ebert is also
an active member of the Institute of Food Technologists(IFT). Daryl Altman,
M.D., a spokesperson for the glutamate industry, worked for former IFT president
Al Clausi, Vice Chairman of Allerx, Inc. and itsmedical affiliate, The Food
Allergy Center. Altman has spoken publicly about the safety of monosodium
glutamate, often with Taylor. The IFIC promotes them as speakers without mention
of the fact that they represent the glutamate industry. L.T. Chiaramonte, M.D.,
who has co-authored work for the IGTC with Altman, has served on the medical
advisory board of The Food AllergyCenter.
