In some countries, including the United States, food labels have been around for more than half a century, but not many people have paid attention to them at the beginning. As problems associated with poor eating habits and illnesses increase, more and more people read the information printed on food packaging labels. The main role of food labels is to inform consumers about the nutritional value and ingredients of the food, the manufacturer, the health claims and possible allergens or other potentially threatening food information. The Food and Drug Administration has certain requirements for information printed on food labels in the United States, which are clearly defined in the Nutrition Labelling and Education Act. Each country has certain regulatory agencies and certain laws that regulate this issue. Inaccurate information on food labels can cause many problems for customers and manufacturers. Regarding the most commonly allergenic ingredients, the wrong "best use date" or any such false information may damage the customer, so the manufacturer will face serious litigation.  Therefore, it is very important for consumers and manufacturers to put accurate labels on food.

Food nutrition label is the source of consumers' understanding of the nutritional components and characteristics of pre-packaged foods. It is also the basis for selecting foods according to their own health needs. It can guide consumers to choose foods reasonably and promote dietary nutrition balance.
Before formulating the shelf life of a food, objective analysis of the quality of the food, such as microbiological tests, physical and chemical tests, and sensory tests, is required. When performing microbiological tests, it is common to check E. coli and Staphylococcus aureus. The main cause of gastrointestinal diseases or food poisoning caused by unclean food is that the relevant microorganisms exceed the standard.
Each year, millions of Americans have allergic reactions to food. Although most food allergies cause relatively mild and minor symptoms, some food allergies can cause severe reactions, and may even be life-threatening. There is no cure for food allergies. Strict avoidance of food allergens—and early recognition of allergic reactions to food—are important measures to prevent serious health consequences. 
Food additives are the substances which are added in the food products during preparation to retain or to enhance the taste and durability of the product. But excess utilization and consumption of these food additives may sometimes be linked with the health risks.
