Food Packages In Canada Must State In “Plain Language” Which Ingredients May Be Allergenic

August 3, 2012: 12:00 AM EST
Canada has just implemented new food labeling regulations that require more detailed lists of ingredients – specifically potential allergens – on food packages. Manufacturers are now required to clearly state in “plain language” the presence of ingredients that could cause an allergic reaction. The 10 priority food allergens listed by Health Canada include peanuts, eggs, milk, tree nuts, wheat, soy, sesame seeds, seafood, sulfites and mustard. "The changes are an example of how collaboration between industry, government and stakeholders result in benefits for consumers," the industry organization Food and Consumer Products of Canada said in a statement.
