The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has announced that it will not initiate enforcement actions for the updated Nutrition and Supplement Facts label requirements in 2021 against food manufacturers with less than $10 million in annual food sales. The updated requirements are scheduled to take effect January 1, 2021. “Although the compliance date will remain in place, the FDA will not focus on enforcement actions during 2021 for these smaller food manufacturers,” the announcement states. “This additional flexibility includes manufacturers of packages and containers of single-ingredient sugars, regardless of the size of the manufacturer.”
