What are food safety labels?

Food labels are used to inform consumers about the quality of food. They are designed to help consumers make a more informed decision when shopping for groceries, and can help people avoid food that has been contaminated with pathogens. There are different types of labels on food, including ingredient labels and nutrition labeling on packaged foods. Labels can also be found on foods that are not in packages, like food service items, such as restaurants and take-out menus.
