PLEASE report your experiences from lack of #sesame
labeling to the FDA before end of 2018! We need your voice.

: Sesame can be labeled in a number of challenging ways. In addition to the long list of alternative names, sesame can be listed as “seasoning,” “spices,” or “natural flavoring.” This makes it nearly impossible to know whether a product actually contains this allergen or not without calling manufacturers.
The FDA is finally considering a request to add sesame to the Food Allergen Labeling and Consumer Protection Act (FALCPA) requiring manufacturers to label for sesame as they currently do for the #Top8 #allergens
(peanut, milk, egg, tree nuts, wheat, fish, shellfish, and soy). All of the national #foodallergy
non-profits are weighing in to give supporting documentation and research, but the #FDA
needs to hear from you!
