    The FDA (Food and Drug Administration) operates under the Food Allergen Labeling and Consumer Protection Act of 2004 (FALCPA), which requires labels on packaged foods containing “major food allergens.” This includes milk, eggs, fish, crustacean shellfish, tree nuts, wheat, peanuts and soybeans, or any other ingredient that contains protein derived from one of these foods or food groups.

    The FDA conducts ongoing scientific research and product testing to keep as up-to-date as possible on food processing and packaging practices that can deliver potential allergens to consumers.
