Yes, the FDA does regulate food labels. There are different levels of regulation depending on the type of food, but essentially, it is too ensure that nutritional facts are given, ingredients are shown, that sort of thing. I’d visit their site for more detailed info.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA), United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) regulate food labels. Nutrition labeling is required for almost all foods. However, some foods do not require labels, such as some bakery and deli items or foods made for immediate consumption.
The use of nutrition labeling was mandated under the 1990 Nutrition Labeling and Education Act. They were mandated under the provisions of that legislation by the recommendations of the United States of Department of Health and Human Services and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). It was one of several controversial actions taken under the tenure of the FDA Commissioner Dr. David Kessler and the law required food companies to begin using the new food label on packaged foods beginning in 1994.
