HHS/FDA RIN: 0910-AF07 Publication ID: Fall 2003 
Title: ●Food Labeling: Food Allergen Ingredient Labeling 
Abstract: The purpose of this rulemaking is to reduce mortality and morbidity by providing sensitive individuals with additional food allergen information to help them protect themselves from serious allergic reactions, including life-threatening anaphylactic shock. The eight most common food allergens are: 1) peanuts; 2) soybeans; 3) milk; 4) eggs; 5) fish; 6) crustacea (e.g., lobster, crab, shrimp); 7) tree nuts (e.g., almonds, chestnuts, macadamia nuts, pecans, walnuts, hazelnuts or filberts, cashews, brazil nuts, pistachios, pine nuts); and 8) wheat. The rule would propose to require that foods that contain certain protein ingredients include information on the label in plain English terms that clearly identifies the presence of these ingredients. The agency is also proposing to require food allergen labeling on spices, flavors, noncertified colors and incidental additives found in foods as ingredients that contain certain allergic proteins. Currently, section 403(i) of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act allows spices, flavors and noncertified colors used as ingredients of foods to be declared collectively on the label without naming each one. Federal regulations at 21 C.F.R. 101.100(a)(3) exempt incidental additives from ingredient declaration on the label if they are present in the food at an insignificant amount and do not have any technical or functional effect in the finished food.
