Question Is food allergens labeling voluntary or enforce?

Advisory labeling is good to warn consumers about the risks but we all know that allergens can be controlled or addressed at the early stages through segregation, cleaning etc of the food chain.

Anyone can shed light on this?

In the US, all packaged foods regulated by FDA under the FD&C Act that are labeled on or after January 1, 2006, must comply with Food Allergen Labeling and Consumer Protection Act of 2004 (FALCPA)

As per FALCPA, a "major food allergen" is an ingredient that is one of the following eight foods or food groups or an ingredient that contains protein derived from one of them:

a. milk
b. egg
c. fish
d. Crustacean shellfish
e. tree nuts
f. wheat
g. peanuts
h. soybeans

Although there are many food allergies in sensitive individuals, the "major food allergens" account for 90 percent of all food allergies. Allergens other than the major food allergens are not subject to FALCPA labeling requirements.

Since FALCPA is an act, there is no question of Voluntary .... it has to be followed.

Refer Food Allergens from the FDA website.

Depends on your local legal and/or regulatory requirements.

Ours is enforced together with GMF (genetically modified food) by the Food Act and the Biosafety Act.
