Key Differences Between Fda And Usda

FDA regulations are governed by the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act and the Fair Packaging and Labeling Act (FPLA). (The Nutrition Labeling and Education Act of 1990 [NLEA] is an amendment to the Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act.) The Federal Meat Inspection and Poultry Products Inspection Acts define USDA's regulatory role and responsibilities. Because the two agencies are governed by separate laws, they have different missions, philosophies, and approaches to food labeling, resulting in subtle differences throughout the regulations.
