“Australia is on the cusp of finally getting the pregnancy warning labels on alcohol products that the community needs, deserves and has long demanded.
The proposed government-mandated labelling scheme being developed by Food Standards Australia New Zealand (FSANZ) will be a world first. This is an opportunity to implement a pregnancy warning label consistently and comprehensively across all alcohol products and most importantly have a pictogram and warning text, prescribed in red, white and black on most products.
After a long 23 year wait, this is the one opportunity to get the labels correct.
BUT HERE’S THE PROBLEM
There are several issues, if not immediately addressed that will weaken the effectiveness of the new labelling scheme.“
