Revised Nutrition Labels Delayed


As a result of a proposed schedule change by the FDA, shoppers will see two different types of Nutrition Facts labels on foods and dietary supplements—one old and one new—for about a year and a half. Large food makers were supposed to start using the updated design by July 2018; smaller companies had until July 2019. FDA extended the deadlines to January 2020 and January 2021, respectively. The labeling revisions required by the new regulations will not change. The FDA says it changed the schedule to provide extra time for the agency to help manufacturers to create labels that comply with the new rules. But because some manufacturers have already rolled out the new labels, some consumers may see both types of labels until the revised ones are fully implemented.
