Generally, alcohol beverages are regulated by TTB (for labeling, licensing, formulation, tax, etc.). However, the FDA regulates issuance of some alcohol labels. The FDA has jurisdiction over the following matters for all alcohol products:
Food safety (i.e., FDA has interest in making sure all food products introduced into the market are safe and not adulterated or produced/packaged/processed/held under unsanitary conditions);
Food Facility Registration; and
Food additives and GRAS (i.e., anything intentionally added to a food product must be GRAS, or “safe”).
Most small businesses selling alcohol can avoid the Nutrition Facts Panel labeling requirement as they often qualify for a Small Business Nutrition Labeling Exemption. The exception applies when a business sells less than 100,000 units of the product in the U.S. during a 12-month period, and must employ less than 100 full time employees.
