FDA Food Labeling For Sunburst Navel Oranges

Consumers have been conditioned to look at the nutrition information on the packaging of their favorite products to help them make good buying decisions.  It is a bit hard to include that on each Sunburst Navel Orange we sell.  Just in case you would like to know.   Here is what our Nutrition Facts Label contains.

Food Labeling Background

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is responsible for assuring that foods sold in the United States are safe, wholesome and properly labeled. This applies to foods produced domestically, as well as foods from foreign countries. The Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FD&C Act) and the Fair Packaging and Labeling Act are the Federal laws governing food products under FDA's jurisdiction.

The FDA receives many questions from manufacturers, distributors, and importers about the proper labeling of their food products. This guidance is a summary of the required statements that must appear on food labels under these laws and their regulations. To help minimize legal action and delays, it is recommended that manufacturers and importers become fully informed about the applicable laws and regulations before offering foods for distribution in the United States.
