Example text

1 Introduction In the United States, regulations surrounding provision of food information have evolved in a unique way. Although the stated principles of protecting public health and consumer interests are the same there are as they are in the European Union, there are many contrasts. Although both EU and US food information regulations are in an era of change, they are not necessarily growing closer together. A review of the requirements of US food information regulation could easily constitute a book on its own, therefore this chapter can only provide an overview and will focus mainly on regulations developed and enforced by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

Section 403 of the Act defines misbranding of foods. A food is considered to be misbranded if: • its labeling is false or misleading, • it is offered for sale under the name of another food, • it is an imitation of another food and does not bear the word “imitation” in proper type size and in the proper location on the label, • the container is made, formed, or filled so as to be misleading, • the label does not contain the name and address of the manufacturer, packer, or distributor, and an accurate statement of the net quantity of contents, • required information is not present and in a form that is likely to be read and understood by consumers, Current regulation of food and beverage labelling in the USA 19 • it is represented as a standardized food and does not meet the requirements of the Standard of Identity for that food, • the food is not a standardized food and the label does not contain the common or usual name of the food, if any, and – if fabricated from two or more ingredients, the label does not contain the common or usual name of each ingredient – it is a special dietary food and does not include information required by regulation, – if a food contains any artificial flavoring, artificial coloring, or chemical preservative and the labeling does not state that fact.

FDA responded that information disseminated over the Internet by, or on behalf of, a regulated company may meet the definition of labelling in Section 201(m) of the Act and be subject to its requirements. A website that promotes an FDA-regulated product, and allows consumers to purchase directly from the website, is likely to be “labelling,” as it would be if the label for a product contained a statement referring the consumer to a specific website for additional information about a claim for the product.
