FDA: New Labeling Rules

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) will retain adulterated products or misbranded food destined for the U.S for up to a month.

The agency will use this time period to determine what action for compliance is required for each product.

The new rules come into effect from July 3 according to the Costa Rican Foreign Trade Promoter (Procomer).

An article in Elfinancierocr.com states "The new rules stipulate that companies exporting goods to the U.S. must notify the FDA if any other country has denied its products entry, including animal feed."
