Label rules.


The federal government’s Food Allergen Labeling and Consumer Protection Act (FALCA) mandates that if a packaged food contains fish, the specific fish used must appear on the ingredients label.


The wording “may contain” a specific type of fish, while not regulated, is a warning sign to avoid the product just to be safe. Note that food companies are not under a legal obligation to inform consumers about the risk of cross contamination (although many do).
