Gottlieb Tweets New Nutrition Labeling Compliance Date Extension “Closer to 18 Months”

In May 2016, FDA issued final rules to implement changes to the nutrition labeling and serving size regulations. Mandatory compliance with the new nutrition labeling requirements for food products was initially slated for July 26, 2018 (or July 26, 2019 for manufacturers with less than $10 million in annual food sales).  As previously covered on this blog, however, FDA announced earlier this year that the compliance dates for the new nutrition labeling requirements will be extended.

On Thursday, September 14, FDA Commissioner Gottlieb tweeted that the Agency intends to propose an extended compliance date for the new nutrition labeling requirements somewhere in the range of “closer to 18 months.”
