New FDA Food Labeling Guide

FDA’s Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition has published a new version of “A Food Labeling Guide.” This is an excellent basic guide to food labeling. Most frequently raised questions have been answered in easy to read, question-and-answer format.

The document note: “FDA receives many questions from manufacturers, distributors and importers about the proper labeling of their food products. This guidance is a summary of the required statements that must appear on food labels under these laws and their regulations. To help minimize legal action and delays, it is recommended that manufacturers and importers become fully informed about the applicable laws and regulations before offering foods for distribution in the United States.”

Correct food labeling is indeed a very critical issue for manufacturers. There are many rules that should be taken into consideration before designing the labels of products. This is why many companies also hire label printing companies that specifically deal with these kind of services.
