Title: ●Food Labeling: Calorie Labeling of Articles of Food in Vending Machines; Front of Package Font Size and Signage for Gums, Mints and Roll Candy Sold From Vending Machines  

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is amending its regulations on providing calorie declarations for certain articles of food sold from vending machines.   Foods sold from a vending machine are not required to disclose the calorie information if the prospective purchaser can view visible nutrition information at the point of purchase, this includes Front of Pack (FOP) labeling.  This proposed rule would change the font size requirements for FOP labeling in glass front vending machines.  In addition, the proposed rule would provide additional flexibility for calorie labeling of gums, mints and roll candy when grouped together in glass front vending machines since there are space restraints for labeling these foods.
