TTB noted it has received petitions to mandate additional information on product labels and thinks it might be time for major revision. TTB is asking for comment on:

• Should mandatory nutrition labeling be required?

• Should mandatory ingredient labeling be required?

• What areas need further research and evaluation?

• Can existing regulations be modified to help consumers better understand the information on the label?

• Should the U.S. harmonize its labeling requirements with those of other major producer nations?

• Would the benefit to consumers from more specific information justify the costs involved?

• What should be the priorities in label changes?

• Should new labeling requirements apply equally to advertising?
