I am trying to make sure I cover all bases for labeling. Did USDA adopt the new FDA nutrition labeling guidelines and racc, or are there specific USDA guidelines. I have looked online, but wasn't finding anything and want to be sure.

Food Allergen Labeling General Information F1. Whatis the Food Allergen Labeling and Consumer Protection Act of 2004? Answer: The Food Allergen Labeling and Consumer Protection Act of 2004 (FALCPA) (or Title II of Public Law 108-282) is a law that was enacted in August 2004. Among other issues, FALCPA addresses the labeling of all packaged foods regulated by the FDA.

"We recommend that producers of meat products, poultry products, and egg products, which are regulated by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), contact appropriate USDA agency staff regarding the labeling of such products. Also see Information about Food Allergens for more information about the agency's food allergen activities and related guidance documents that address additional FALCPA questions and answers. http://www.fda.gov/F...ng/default.htm"

 

It would appear not---everything on USDAs page links to documents from 2011
