Oppose Delay of the Updated Nutrition Facts Label

The Food and Drug Administration recently proposed delaying the updated Nutrition Facts label until January 2020 for large companies (with annual sales over $10 million), and until January 2021 for smaller companies. This decision to cave in to the food industry’s demands harms the public’s health and denies consumers vital information. Because many companies are already using the new labels, the decision also creates an unfair and confusing marketplace. We have until November 1 to oppose this effort.
