Wine should have the same allergen labeling requirements that the FDA requires for food under FALCPA. If we have different labeling standards, consumers will have to know which products are covered by which standard--USDA? FDA? TTB? Many consumers assume that FALCPA covers all foods, beverages, and supplements. This is not the case. It creates an unsafe situation where people assume that if no warning is present, the food is free of allergens. We need to standardize allergen labeling across the board.

Yes, my children are the ones with food allergies, but I would like to be able to use wine when cooking family meals. Also, when they are adults, I am sure they will want to enjoy wine knowing that it is free of allergens.
