The Alcohol Facts panel would contain basic information such as serving size calories per serving alcohol content per serving and allergen information. The FTC also strongly supported the panel saying it is “likely to have beneficial effects on consumers and competition.” Other support came from health associations including the American Medical Association and the American Dietetic Association.
