FDA Labeling Guidelines
Effective Dec.1,2016

            The rule requires vending machine operators who own or operate 20 or more vending machines to declare calories for those items for which the Nutrition Fact label cannot be examined before purchase or for which visible nutrition information is not otherwise provided at the point of purchase (see section 403(q)(5)(H)(viii) of the FD&C Act)

Key Points for operators:
The intent of the FDA regulation is to provide consumers with the caloric disclosure on or around the machine prior to making the vend purchase, for ALL products being sold.
The caloric disclosure MUST include the “total calories” being vended. This is different than “calories per serving” because certain consumer product companies label their products as “multiple servings” in the vend package thus misleading the consumer with the total calories in the vend package.
The caloric disclosure should be readily visible by the consumer while at the machine so that the consumer can see the information, the product in the machine, the price and the product selection - all at the same time.
The FDA is flexible on how the caloric disclosure is executed as long as the consumer can readily see the caloric information/product/price. Acceptable forms include:
On the Product itself – front or back of pack. Should the vend coil block the caloric information, the vend operator is not in compliance.
An electronic or digital display
Labels or stickers
Forms of disclosure that do NOT meet the FDA requirements include caloric information on a mobile app or information on the side of a vending machine which is not accessible to the consumer.
Vending companies are responsible for caloric disclosure – not the consumer product companies
Vending Industry Compliance Dates
The compliance dates for ALL vending machines (including both glass-front and non-glass-front machines) is DECEMBER 2016.

There is one (1) exception to this compliance date for Glass-front Machines, if and only if the vending company displays the caloric disclosure, from either front or back of pack, on all products in their vending machines, but the “font size” on the product does not meet the FDA requirements. This compliance has been extended to April of 2018 only for those glass-front machines that meet these requirements.
