USDA Label Audit

74% of Generic Labels Need Revisions: "Consumers expect product labels to be accurate when they choose products to purchase. If FSIS is not verifying a sample of generic labels, the agency runs the risk of inaccurate or unsupported product labels being in commerce." - Office of Inspector General Audit Report, June 2020

Why?

USDA Is No Longer Approving Generic Labels

With the burden of label compliance fully on industry, it pays to get a second opinion before being faced with a Noncompliance Report (NR) from a local inspector. Rejection of a label can lead to multiple delays and costly production interruptions. PLC is the most qualified USDA label consulting company with greater than 95% approval rate at the USDA (compared with a 63% industry average). With over 1,700 data checks in one label review why not use Label IQ for peace of mind?

Bioengineered (BE) Labeling Assessment

empty box

Compliance Date is January 1, 2022: "The National Bioengineered Food Disclosure Law, passed by Congress in July of 2016, directed USDA to establish this national mandatory standard for disclosing foods that are or may be bioengineered." - Agricultural Marketing Service, USDA

empty box

Why?

New Regulation Requires Either BE Disclosure or Recordkeeping of Exemption

The food industry is facing widespread confusion as companies scramble to determine which products fall under the new BE labeling law, which ingredients in the food supply are bioengineered, and how to best fulfill the government's record keeping requirements. There are over 1,000 potentially bioengineered derived ingredients in the food supply chain.

02

Automating Audits

Memorizing the 1,000+ ingredients that could trigger bioengineered labeling is an impossible task. So too is manually checking every row in the NFP (we count over 1300 compliance points!) and calculating net weight equivalencies. That is where Label IQ comes in. Leveraging decades of software development and ingredient expertise, we computerize all the hard stuff so that you don't have to - the benefit is increased accuracy and time savings.

Adding Human Judgement
