Title: Metric Labeling; Measurement
Description: From left to right, the first two (green and red) cartons feature a dual net quantity of contents statement on the label, as required under the current Fair Packaging and Labeling Act (FPLA). The blue carton (far right) features only a metric label, as is recommended by the Uniform Packaging and Labeling Regulation (UPLR), but prohibited by the FPLA. A proposed FPLA amendment would permit U.S. manufacturers to choose either dual or metric labeling for their products.
