Open in new window Allergen Labeling on Food Products

Courtney Crist ( November, 2020 )


The Food Allergen Labeling and Consumer Protection Act (FALCPA), which took effect on January 1, 2006, requires food manufacturers to use common names to identify major allergens. Allergen declaration is required on products regulated by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), and state regulatory authorities (e.g., Mississippi Department of Agriculture and Commerce, Mississippi State Department of Health, Mississippi Department of Marine Resources). Additionally, FALCPA’s labeling requirements extend to cottage food products and foods packaged by retail or foodservice establishments.
