USA: Consultation on Food Allergen Labeling Requirements

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is seeking public and industry comments on two guidance documents about food allergen labeling requirements. Both documents intend to help the food industry meet the need to list any significant food allergen on the labels of FDA-regulated foods. Major food allergens in the United States include tree nuts and peanuts.

The new draft guidance includes revised questions and answers to update and clarify information presented in earlier editions of the guidance, such as the labeling of tree nuts and images that show examples of labeling requirements.

Deadline for comments is January 30, 2023.
