Regulation of food labeling in the United States falls mainly under the jurisdiction of two federal agencies: the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA).

All other food products, including certain products containing only small amounts of meat or poultry and certain products (eg, traditional sandwiches) not associated by consumers with the meat and poultry industry, fall under the jurisdiction of FDA's Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition (CFSAN). Although the two regulatory agencies approach many aspects of food labeling in a similar manner, occasionally they differ.
