A New Way to Contact FDA/Food

On March 3, 2014, FDA’s Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition’s Food and Cosmetics Information Center (FCIC) implemented a new online form, enabling industry representatives and consumers to submit their inquiries electronically to our website.

The email addresses that were used in the past for consumer (  and industry ( inquiries have been retired.The new online form will permit inquirers to provide the relevant information needed by the FCIC staff to appropriately and efficiently triage and respond to each inquiry, allowing us to improve our overall customer service and increase our ability to provide accurate and timely responses.

For more information about food safety, call FDA's Food Information Line at: 1-888-SAFEFOOD or submit your inquiry electronically. The Information Line is open Monday through Friday 10AM – 4PM EST except for Thursdays 12PM – 1PM EST and Federal Holidays.

Thank you for your interest in the FCIC, we look forward to serving you.
