FDA to Overhaul Nutrition Facts Labels 
 After 20 years, the nutrition facts label on the back of food packages is getting a makeover. Knowledge about nutrition has evolved since the early 1990s, and the Food and Drug Administration says the labels need to reflect that. Nutritionists and other health experts have their own wish list for label change.
Food Safety Regulatory Outlook for 2014
While FDA is busy implementing more of FSMA, USDA will roll out its Salmonella Action Plan.
Food companies, advocacy groups urge G.M.O. labels
Representative Peter DeFazio of Oregon held a press conference Jan. 16 to highlight a letter to President Obama advocating the inclusion of labeling that identifies food products that are bioengineered.
US livestock organisations and food associations fear that new country-of-origin labelling (COOL) rules, set out in the Farm Bill, could provoke retaliation from Canada and Mexico and are strongly opposed to the new legislation.
The US Food and Drug Administration has unofficially announced that it will revise the nutrition facts label for the first time in 20 years. Unsurprisingly, the nutritional community and food industry offered a few suggestions-from serving size vagaries to unnecessary designations-it hopes the agency will address in the nutrition label update.
