Are there any regulations regarding the labeling of additional allergens besides the Big 8? For example, many people are allergic to sulfites - is it acceptable to list sulfites in the allergen Contains statement to warn consumers of its presence? I have not seen any similar topics..

As far as I understand it, you only need to label the allergens defined in the region of sale. Note that the EU has a different set from the US (14 not 8).

There are industry labelling tools for most countries...check the usda's website as the rules are particular about when a "may contain" statement is allowable/required

Because we always have is never an appropriate response!
