Front-of-package symbols warning

FDA's Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition reminds manufacturers in a Dec. 11 guidance that front-of-pack labeling may qualify as nutrient content claims. For example, a package touting the product as "a good source of calcium would need to meet the minimum nutrient content level for calcium," the letter says. Barbara Schneeman, director of CFSAN's Office of Nutrition, Labeling and Dietary Supplements, says that "we are happy to notify manufacturers if we find" front-of-pack symbols "not consistent with current requirements, or used in a matter that is false or misleading." CFSAN researchers will analyze how consumers read front-of-pack symbols
