Mission and Approach

FDA's regulatory history began with the passage in 1906 of the Pure Food and Drugs Acts, which instituted federal oversight of food labeling. The 1906 act was replaced in 1938 by the current law. In 1973, FDA initiated a voluntary nutrition-labeling program that represented a regulatory turning point—the inclusion of meaningful health information on food labels.

Under the Federal Meat Inspection and Poultry Products Inspection Acts, USDA's primary regulatory role has been to prevent public health hazards resulting from improper handling of meat and poultry during production and packaging. USDA has an extensive network of field offices responsible for conducting plant inspections, and the national office administers a label preapproval program.
