FDA Statement on Counterfeit Foods

Food sold in the U.S. is required to be safe, sanitary, and properly labeled. Food fraud is a generic term that could include, but is not limited to, mislabeling a product or ingredient, diluting a product or ingredient, providing less of a product than is indicated on the box, or not meeting a federally established standard for a particular product. The FDA can take action when economically motivated adulteration is identified in a regulated food product, such as by working to remove the product from the marketplace. Combating food fraud is the responsibility of both industry and regulatory authorities.
