In 1977, the FDA tried to protect us from excessive Vitamin A and Vitamin D fortification, only to be struck down by the courts

This is beyond interesting:

Dietary Reference Intakes: Guiding Principles for Nutrition Labeling and Fortification. - Chapter 3, Overview of Food Fortification in the United States and Canada

When FDA attempted to limit the amount of vitamin A and vitamin D fortification by declaring any level higher than 150 percent of the U.S. Recommended Daily Allowances (US RDAs) to be a prescription drug, this approach was also struck down by the courts.2

National Nutritional Foods Association v. Mathews, 557 F.2d 325 (2d Cir. 1977).

I believe that Vitamin A is toxic and Vitamin D should never be taken by mouth...so if it had been limited or disallowed in food fortification back then, people would probably be a lot healthier these days in my opinion.
