Fair Packaging and Labeling Act (1966)Feedback.png


Definition

The Fair Packaging and Labeling Act requires that labels on consumer commodities identify the type of product being sold, the name and address of the supplier, and where applicable, the quality and contents of each serving. The act also authorizes the FTC and FDA to issue regulations concerning specific products covering items such as ingredient statements, package size standards, "slack-fill" packaging, and sales price representations.[1]
