Groups support alcohol facts labeling
Public interest groups the National Consumers League and Shape Up America held a news conference demanding that the Bureau of Alcohol Tax and Trade immediately mandate an Alcohol Facts panel on labels of beer, wine, and distilled spirits similar to panels on food and beverage packaging.
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.
