《美國新營養標示規範將延後至2020年1月1日起陸續生效》 資料來源：FDA 發布日期：2017/09/29
本次延後是因其中尚有許多配套措施須討論與調整，如定義何謂單一份量包裝，需以雙欄位標示之產品類別，修訂參考食用量(Reference Amount Customarily Consumed, 簡稱RACC)，及口氣芳香劑的標示規範等。

On September 29, the FDA released a proposed rule to extend the compliance dates for the Nutrition Facts and Supplement Facts label final rule and the Serving Size final rule from July 26, 2018, to Jan. 1, 2020,for manufacturers with $10 million or more in annual food sales.
Manufacturers with less than $10 million in annual food sales would receive an extra year to comply—until Jan. 1, 2021.
In May 2016, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration finalized the Nutrition Facts and Supplement Facts Label and Serving Size final rules and set the compliance date for July 26, 2018,with an additional year to comply for manufacturers with annual food sales of less than $10 million.
After those rules were finalized,industry and consumer groups provided the FDA with feedback regarding the compliance dates.After careful consideration,the FDA determined that additional time would provide manufacturers covered by the rule with necessary guidance from FDA,and would help them be able to complete and print updated nutrition facts panelsfor their products before they are expected to be in compliance.
As a result, the FDA intends to extend the compliance dates to provide the additional time for implementation.The framework for the extension will be guided by the desire to give industry more time and decrease costs,balanced with the importance of minimizing the transition period during which consumers will see both the old and the new versions of the label in the marketplace.
