Understanding FDA And USDA Requirements In Food Packaging And Labeling

Together, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) combine to regulate the vast majority of the food that Americans consume. The requirements and approaches of these two agencies differ in fundamental ways. Having dedicated counsel who understands the law and can help to ensure ongoing compliance can be extremely beneficial.

At the law firm of Eric F. Greenberg, P.C., we represent food producers and packaging manufacturers in a broad range of FDA and USDA regulatory compliance matters. We have a complete understanding of the regulations that impact food packaging and labeling, and we have extensive experience helping clients establish and implement comprehensive compliance plans.

Taking A Proactive Approach To Protecting Your Business Interests

A large part of our packaging law practice involves reviewing clients’ current compliance programs and recommending changes based on current laws. Our knowledge of the ongoing changes to the law allows us to provide the most meaningful advice possible and ensure that all pertinent considerations have been addressed.

Why Would FDA’s Emergency Actions Stick Around After the Emergency is Over?

Why Would FDA’s Emergency Actions Stick Around After the Emergency is Over?

By Eric F. Greenberg, Attorney-at-law

While some of the Food and Drug Administration’s actions in response to COVID-19 have been traditional, many others have been simplifications of regulatory requirements, and those simplifications could be made permanent.

Here’s one type of activity that was traditional: The agency has been slapping down phony drug products. The moment the COVID-19 pandemic hit the scene, dietary supplement products claiming to cure or prevent the virus started to be offered for sale, and immediately FDA and the Federal Trade Commission started making a regular habit of issuing stern warnings to the makers of the products.
