Overview of the different labeling and marking requirements, including any restrictive advertising or labeling practices and where to get more information.
Specific marks or labels are required for food and pharmaceutical products. All other goods do not require a label. Labels on processed food products should indicate ingredients in order of predominance, the name and address of manufacturer, and expiration date. Labels on pharmaceutical products must indicate weight or quantity of active ingredients and the lot control number. The date of expiration and the generic name and/or commercial name of pharmaceutical drugs should also be included.
