Consumer/Health Groups Call for Meaningful Change in How Treasury Department Regulates Alcohol Labeling
Date:12/12/2008

ic health messages also requires ending the stalemate in modernizing beverage alcohol labels, which traces back to 1972, when consumer organizations first asked the federal government to require meaningful alcohol labeling. In 2003, the National Consumers League joined with the Center for Science in the Public Interest, Consumer Federation of America and 75 other public health and consumer organizations to submit a formal petition to TTB. This resulted in the agency issuing an "advanced notice of proposed rulemaking" in April 2005 and receiving more than 18,000 comments, of which 96 percent supported giving consumers access to standardized and complete labeling information on beer, wine and distilled spirits labels.

TTB's most recent action occurred in 2007 when the agency proposed a mandatory "Serving Facts" panel on beer, wine and distilled spirits but notably ignored the most important information consumers need when consuming an alcoholic beverage -- alcohol content disclosure and the amount of alcohol in a serving. This resulted in another barrage of letters from consumers and public health leaders, all calling for more complete information on the label. Since the close of the public comment period in February 2008, TTB has not moved forward with issuing final regulations.
