Title: ●Food Labeling: Calorie Labeling of Articles of Food Sold From Certain Vending Machines; Front of Package Type Size 

FDA is proposing to amend its regulations on the type size requirement for calorie declarations for certain foods sold from chain vending machines covered by statutory calorie disclosure requirements.  If finalized, the proposed rule would change the type size requirements for Front of Pack (FOP) labeling in glass front vending machines.  We are taking this action in response to requests from the vending and packaged food industry to align the FOP type-size requirements with the current voluntary FOP programs already instituted by the packaged food industry.  This action with also eliminate barriers identified by the vending machine industry to complying with the calorie labeling requirements.
