ACA In Action

ACA recently sent members of Congress an Issue Backgrounder urging Congressional action to establish nationwide science-based standards for government labeling programs.

ACA is asking Congress to amend the Fair Packaging and Labeling Act, and provide for the following:

  • All government warning and labeling programs must reflect the best available science and the weight of the scientific evidence. Information should adhere to high standards of scientific excellence; and
  • Consumer warnings must be based on risk, not hazard. Information is most valuable to consumers if it is based on risk, which is the likelihood that a substance could cause harm under real-world exposure scenarios.

Uniform national standards will increase the relevance, consistency and accuracy of information about products and ensure greater certainty and clarity for consumers, farmers, food producers, manufacturers, small businesses and retailers.

ACA Supports Accurate Labels Act

The Accurate Labels Act, H.R. 6022/S. 3019, is a bipartisan bill that aims to provide American consumers nationwide with clear, accurate and meaningful information to prevent the issuance of inaccurate labels that mislead consumers and drive up prices.

Ask your federal legislators to support the Accurate Labels Act to ensure that consumers have access to accurate and easy-to-understand product information.
