U.S. food labeling requirements are complex and constantly changing.  While the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulates most food labeling, the labels of certain foods are regulated by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), which applies separate regulations.  USDA has its own set of country of origin labeling requirements for certain commodities which differ from those required by U.S. Customs and Border Protection.  Both sets of rules apply to such commodities.  Other federal agencies, including the Federal Trade Commission, regulate certain aspects of food labeling and marketing.  States and municipalities may have their own unique rules for certain categories of items.  Lieberman PLLC assists firms in complying with food labeling requirements.  We can review your labels for compliance with applicable requirements.
