Product Description

Learn How to Reduce Your Food Labeling Compliance Risks – and Avoid Product Recalls


The requirements for food ingredient and dietary supplement declaration are complex –and incorrectly declared allergens are one of the main reasons for product recalls. Plus, supplements have additional, not-so-straightforward requirements. If you want to understand the phrasing in the Food Allergen Labeling and Consumer Protection Act (FALCPA), there’s only an FDA guidance, no FDA regulation. But you need to understand the “dos” and “don’ts” to correctly interpret potential exemptions that offer regulatory alleviations, as well as other regulatory requirements to ensure you’re in compliance.

Learn how to reduce your food labeling compliance risks and avoid costly product recalls in this webinar by industry veteran Gisela Leon. Leon will decode the regulatory requirements for ingredient declaration in simple, easy-to-understand English – so that you’re fully prepared to meet the regulatory requirements.

Leon will teach you about general provisions, similarities and differences between conventional foods and dietary supplement declarations, correct allergen declarations, potential exemptions, the types of ingredients in dietary supplement declarations, and special dietary ingredient declarations – including formatting requirements.

After attending this webinar, you will be able to correctly review and label your company’s food ingredient and dietary supplement declarations. Food labeling can get complex at times—let Leon decode it for you.
