In the US, the primary agency responsible for regulating allergen labeling on food products is the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The FDA established the Food Allergen Labeling and Consumer Protection Act of 2004 (FALCPA), which requires that food labels clearly identify the food source names of any ingredients that contain any protein derived from the nine most common food allergens.
