FDA to delay rule requiring new nutrition facts panel

The Trump administration announced Tuesday that it is delaying an Obama-era rule to require manufacturers to update nutritional facts labels on processed foods. The decision came following feedback from industry and consumer groups on the original compliance date, issued in May 2016, of July 26, 2018, with an additional year to comply for manufacturers with less than $10 million in annual food sales. It's the Trump administration's latest delay of the Obama administration's rules meant to improve food labeling and make foods healthier and safer.

Aside from new added sugars listings, the calorie listing is to be changed to bigger, bolder type and serving sizes should be made more realistic. Spokeswoman Deborah Kotz said in an email that details will be released at a later date. Current labels only cite amounts of total sugar in a product, which might include naturally occurring sugars, the AP said.

Food makers hailed the extension as "reasonable and practical", in the words of Pamela G. Bailey, president and CEO of the Washington, D.C. -based Grocery Manufacturers Association.


The public health advocates at the Center for Science in the Public Interest - a group that has long pushed for improvements to nutrition labels - argue that this delay is a disservice to consumers. The postponement was a response to "numerous stakeholders" requesting more time, the regulator said, though it did not say what the new deadline would be. Last month, the FDA delayed a rule requiring chain restaurants, grocery and convenience stores and other food retailers to post calorie counts for prepared food and beverages on its menu.

American Heart Association Chief Executive Nancy Brown lamented the decision, saying the FDA is putting “industries concerns before the publics health.”. That is also leading to inconsistency in what people see, since some businesses had already started posting the calorie counts in anticipation of the previous deadline. And the Agriculture Department has delayed animal welfare standards for organic foods and sodium standards for federally subsidized school lunches.
