@Sarah J I have not yet heard the results from California's latest review of proposed additions to the Safe Food List (the review is/was this month), however no Meringue Powder is on the list, not even Wilton's. A note, this is California law, not my county.... although the approval for a CFO and our ingredients used comes through the county.
It could be a great idea to ask MP manufacturers/sellers to get together to fund a test in one state that could help it be on "safe" lists starting with the USDA (as although their exact formula is not the same, their ingredients tend to be).
I'll see if I can find any updates next week, however I'm not optimistic.
Sounds like a cause you are passionate about - why not lead the charge yourself in contacting meringue powder suppliers on this topic? I bet if you demonstrated/estimated their lost sales in CA due the current regulations, you could pique their interest in working together to effect change.
