Quote:
The legislation will require food manufacturers to identify, in plain, common language, the presence of any of the eight major food allergens (milk, egg, peanut, tree nut, fish, shellfish, wheat, soy).

FALCPA also requires food labels to indicate the presence of major food allergens used in spices, flavorings, additives, and colorings, which had previously been exempt from allergen labeling. This closes a loop hole that puts people at risk from "hidden" or undeclared ingredients.

Thanks for this Susan! I hope we will see sesame seed added to the U.S. list sometime in the future. The most recent newsletter released by FAAN had a lengthy article in which sesame seed was discussed. I contacted FAAN a few months ago, and they are seeing an increase in sesame allergies in the U.S. as well.
