FSA seeks views on precautionary allergen labelling
Dec 16, 2021
The Food Standards Agency (FSA) has launched a consultation to gather views from businesses and consumers on the use of precautionary allergen information and labels, often written as “may contain” on food packaging.
Recent FSA studies have found that food-hypersensitive consumers – people who live with food allergies, intolerances, or coeliac disease - appreciate precautionary allergen information or labelling when it clearly tells them about an unavoidable risk of allergen cross-contamination.
Consultation period: 6 December 2021 - 14 March 2022
