What’s happening?

  • In May 2016, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) announced changes to the Nutrition Facts label on all U.S. foods required to carry it.
  • As a result, all General Mills nutrition labels will be updated to comply with these required changes. You'll see these changes reflected on each product page, within the Nutrition Facts dropdown.

When will the changes occur?

  • New packaging must be in production for all impacted products by January 1, 2020. Small manufacturers with less than $10MM in annual food sales have an additional year for compliance – January 1, 2021.
  • It is not feasible to change all of our product labels at the exact same time. We are phasing in the new label across our portfolio throughout 2018 and 2019 to comply with FDA’s requirements. The majority of products with updated labels will be on shelf by January 2020; however, some may appear slightly later.
