COVID-19 update: FDA issues temporary policy for menu labeling requirements and updates COVID-19 guidance

This post summarizes recent actions the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has taken in response to the COVID-19 outbreak.

In light of the need for many of these entities to change their business practices quickly (e.g., switching from dine-in to takeout only or making menu substitutions), FDA will not object to establishments that do not meet applicable menu labeling requirements.
