Reliable Representation For US And International Food Labeling Requirements

Food, drug and device labeling is heavily regulated, with requirements for both mandatory content as well as voluntary claims made regarding the product. Understanding international and U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) food labeling requirements is essential to ensuring that you remain compliant.

The typical food label contains a statement of identity, net weight of contents, name of the manufacturer, packer, distributor, nutrition fact panel, and a list of ingredients, including allergens. However, additional regulations can come into play depending on the types of voluntary claims you choose to include.

At the law firm of Eric F. Greenberg, P.C., we represent clients in a wide array of domestic and international food labeling matters. We are prepared to advise all issues related to labeling requirements. We have decades of experience, and attorney Greenberg has taught a two-day short course on food labeling for the Institute of Food Technologists (IFT). You will be hard-pressed to find a more knowledgeable or better prepared advisor in these matters.

Providing Comprehensive Food Labeling Compliance Services

As with most other areas of compliance, proper preparation is often the best approach. We work with many clients who send us prints of their labels for review prior to distribution of the product. We frequently review labels for clients and provide feedback on any changes we would recommend in order to ensure compliance.

We are also committed to helping clients become familiar with labeling requirements. In addition to providing feedback and recommending changes to your label, we will also provide you with a complete explanation of our rationale and the regulations that led to our recommendations.

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.
