LABELLING REGULATIONS FOR FOOD ALLERGENS

The eight foods identified by the law are:

  1. Milks
  2. Eggs
  3. Fish (e.g., bass, flounder, cod)
  4. Crustacean shellfish (e.g. crab, lobster, shrimp)
  5. Tree nuts (e.g., almonds, walnuts, pecans)
  6. Peanuts
  7. Wheat
  8. Soybeans

 

These eight foods and any ingredient that contains protein derived from one or more of them, are designated as “major food allergens” by FALCPA.

 

The law requires that food labels identify the food source names of all major food allergens used to make the food. This requirement is met if the common or usual name of an ingredient (e.g., buttermilk) that is a major food allergen already identifies that allergen’s food source name (i.e., milk).  Otherwise, the allergen’s food source name must be declared at least once on the food label in one of two ways.
