ACS CAN Comments on FDA's Proposed Rule to Delay the Updated Nutrition Facts Label

October 30, 2017

ACS CAN submitted comments to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration on their proposed rule to delay the compliance date for the updated Nutrition Facts label by 18 months.  ACS CAN opposes the compliance date extension and recommends that the updated Nutrition Facts label be implemented without delay.  The revised format and content of the updated label make it easier for people to use the label to make healthy choices, which can reduce their risk of cancer and other chronic diseases.
