FDA solicits input on front-of-package labeling
The FDA is seeking public participation as it deliberates about how to enhance the usefulness to consumers of point-of-purchase nutrition information.
This includes information on the main display panel of food products, called "front-of-pack" labeling, as well as on tags at retail shelves. The FDA is seeking to learn more about the extent to which consumers notice, use and understand such nutrition symbols. The agency is accepting comments until July 28, 2010.
