FDA Issues Letter to Remind Manufacturers about Food Labeling Requirements

FDA Issues Letter to Remind Manufacturers about Food Labeling Requirements

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) last month issued a "Dear Manufacturer" letter to remind food companies to follow FDA's food labeling requirements. Although the letter offers no new information, it reviews the different categories of claims – health claims, nutrient content claims, structure and function claims, and dietary guidance – that manufacturers are allowed on to use conventional foods. The letter also reinforces FDA's position that website content is considered labeling material and is subject to FDA regulations. "We understand that no particular example prompted the letter," said Cary Frye, IDFA vice president of regulatory affairs. "Still, we urge members to review the food labeling requirements to make sure that all labels for their milk and milk products are in compliance." To read the FDA letter, click here.
