Clarity and Resources: Food Safety Labels

According to a new report from the Natural Resources Defense Council and Harvard Law School's Food Law and Policy Clinic, Americans are confused about food safety labeling, often resulting in food waste. The Academy offers a variety of resources for consumers on food labeling and is forming a Food and Nutrition Labeling Workgroup to analyze the issue.

The report is titled The Dating Game: How Confusing Food Date Labels Lead to Food Waste in America.

This Academy's workgroup will use scientific evidence to assess whether labeling formats and contents are understandable to consumers and ensure that allowable nutrient and health claims are not misleading.

The Academy is also sharing tips and guides through the Food Safety section on and a Food Safety on the Label article and Keep It Cool: Refrigerator/Freezer Storage Chart from the Home Food Safety program, a collaborative program between the Academy and ConAgra Foods. The Home Food Safety program also offers the free Is My Food Safe? mobile app for Android and Apple devices that includes a detailed "Time to Toss?" food storage chart and other features.
