Hello all,


I make ready to eat popcorn at a USA plant sold online direct to  USA consumers. I just received a complaint that we used the wrong label on the wrong flavor and sent it out. I know if the product contains an allergen but the incorrect label does not declare it, we would need to. However, in this case it was reversed: the actual product was allergen free but the incorrect label declared allergen. 


Would FDA require us to send the correct label to all those who received the mislabeled product?


Thank you!

Have you looked at any of the FDA information online?  My understanding the label needs to declare all of the ingredients down to >2% of the total. If it is a processing aid, it doesn't need to be declared.
