The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a final rule that provides technical amendments to the two regulations concerning Nutrition Facts and Supplement Facts labeling that were published May 27, 2016. The amendments correct errors made in some sample label illustrations, restore several inadvertent deletions, correct citations to three cross-references and remove a sentence regarding the font size and bolding requirement for the “Calories” declaration in dietary supplement labels. The technical amendments also make other minor revisions, including correcting spelling errors. The final rule became effective December 21, 2018. The law firm Hogan Lovells wrote a memorandum summarizing the amendments.
