***ALERT*** In 2014, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) proposed rules to revise the Nutrition Facts label requirements. This will affect nutrition labeling of fresh produce, anticipated to be effective in 2018. It is important for the industry to consider the impact of these changes with respect to ordering packaging that include nutrition facts labels. FDA has solicited comments on these proposals and is now considering those comments as it prepares to issue a final rule, expected in Spring 2016 with a projected compliance date of January 1, 2018.
