Must the production date be marked on the inner packing bag of food?

generally speaking, the outer packaging is required to be printed with the production date, and the inner packaging can not be printed. However, it also depends on the specific product type. When the outer box and inner box have been produced, they must be produced. The inner bag is used as a separate sales unit than the supermarket. Except for the outer box and bag sales, the production period of each inner bag product is the same, and the production period must be marked separately

one of the required information on food packaging: production date and expiration date (shelf life)

usually, we also say that this is a necessary information for food packaging bags. In fact, this statement has some misunderstandings. Sometimes, when we open the food packed in cartons, we find that there is no date on the food bag inside. For example, now approaching the Mid Autumn Festival, many shopping malls have moon cakes for sale. There is a production date on the moon cake box. Open the moon cake bag inside. Some brands have a production date, and some have no production date. According to the current gb7718-2011 general rules for food pre packaging labels, it is stipulated that the food packaging of the minimum sales unit must be printed with the necessary information including “production date”

minimum sales unit, that is, the minimum unit that consumers can buy. For example, the above moon cakes are sold box by box. Its minimum sales unit is a box. The box must have the production date. The moon cake bag inside does not belong to the packaging of the smallest sales unit, and there is no mandatory requirement in this regard. Printing the production date on the moon cake food packaging bag can improve the consumer experience, and it is not illegal not to print it

in other words, whether there must be a production date on the inner packaging bag of food depends on who is the smallest sales unit of this kind of products? If the inner packaged food can be sold separately, the production date must be printed on the food bag; If the inner packaged food is not sold separately, the production date is not mandatory. The above moon cake packaging is an example of not compulsory printing of production date. Next, let’s take an example of printing. At ordinary times, we can buy instant fish, duck paws, betel nuts and other snack foods either in boxes or in small bags. Therefore, the production date must be printed on the inner packaging bag of this kind of food

in order to ensure food safety, the food safety law requires food production enterprises to establish a factory inspection record system to check the inspection certificate and safety status of factory food; Food business operators shall perform inspection obligations when purchasing food, and food business enterprises shall establish a purchase inspection record system. These systems require food producers and operators to truthfully record a number of food related information, including the date of food production. Whether the production date is delayed or marked in advance, it will lead to the false production date. The implementation of food safety management based on this false information by food producers and operators will directly affect the implementation effect of these systems. Therefore, excluding early labeling from false labeling is not in line with the purpose of establishing food safety guarantee system in the food safety law

according to the summary of practical experience in supervision, the main reasons for production enterprises to mark in advance are:

(1) production management is chaotic, the link diagram of date marking is convenient and easy, and the date setting on the printer or inkjet printer is not adjusted in time according to the production progress

(2) when the manufacturer arranges production, in order to avoid the waste of packaging bags, the marked packaging bags that cannot be used up in the previous batch are used for the next batch of food packaging. Therefore, it can be seen that the advance labeling comes from the confusion of production management in the production process of production enterprises. The production of safe food is the basic obligation of production enterprises. In order to ensure that the food produced meets the food safety standards, Article 46 of the newly revised food safety law clearly requires production enterprises to formulate and implement control requirements for production processes, equipment, storage, packaging and other key production links and finished product delivery inspection links. Production date marking and delivery inspection on food labels are important contents in the two key links of packaging and finished product delivery inspection respectively. Production enterprises need to fulfill the legal obligations stipulated by law, implement control requirements for the production and operation process, and ensure that the food produced meets the food safety standards. If early labeling is excluded from false labeling, it is obviously not conducive to the implementation of production and operation process control requirements by enterprises, which is contrary to the legislative purpose of requiring production enterprises to implement production and operation control requirements and implement the main responsibility of enterprise food safety in the food safety law

to sum up, from the legislative purpose of the food safety law requiring manufacturers to implement the main responsibility of enterprises, establish food safety guarantee system, standardize production management and strictly implement production link control to ensure that food meets the national food safety standards, the interpretation of “false labeling” by the food and drug supervision department should not exclude the situation of “labeling in advance”, but should be recognized as false labeling

in food consumption, consumers generally lack understanding of the production status information of food production enterprises. This information asymmetry is an important reason for many food consumption problems. Consumers’ right to know is the premise and basic right for consumers to complete food consumption, and it is also the key to solve the problems in food consumption. Based on the full protection of consumers’ right to know, consumers have the right to require food producers and operators to perform the obligation of disclosing and informing food information, and ensure the authenticity, accuracy and integrity of food information. Food producers and operators shall not conceal food related information from consumers in order to achieve the purpose of food sales. The real food production date is the most basic requirement of consumers’ right to know for production enterprises. Therefore, the production date marked in advance by production enterprises undoubtedly damages consumers’ right to know. Therefore, for the purpose of protecting consumers’ right to know, advance labeling cannot be excluded from false labeling

food production date is one of the core information that consumers pay attention to when purchasing food. Although labeling the production date in advance makes the shelf life of food end ahead of schedule, labeling the production date in advance seems to be an adverse behavior for consumers, from another perspective, labeling the production date in advance will also mislead consumers in consumption. A typical example is that when a consumer purchases a food with a production date marked in advance and calculates according to the production date marked in advance, it is found that the food has exceeded the shelf life. Under the misleading information, the consumer’s rational choice is to discard the food. However, since the production date is marked in advance, if calculated according to the actual production date, the food does not exceed the shelf life, it is still safe to eat, In this case, consumers will discard the food that is “substantially” still within the shelf life, which will cause a certain loss of e
conomic benefits to consumers, which undoubtedly comes from the misleading effect of early labeling on consumers. For such acts that may lead to the loss of consumers’ economic interests, the law should hold a negative attitude, so as to meet the purpose of protecting consumers’ rights and interests. Based on the purpose of consumer protection, the interpretation of false labeling should not exclude early labeling

the third view on the identification of early marking of production date is to regard it as a defect and advocate the application of the second paragraph of Article 125 of the food safety law. However, the author believes that it is necessary to regard the production date marked in advance as a defect, which is reasonable compared with excluding it from false marking. However, this view holds that the application of the penalty provisions in paragraph 2 of Article 125 lacks legitimacy reasons, because the application of the penalty provisions needs to meet the two limiting conditions of the provisions, namely “does not affect food safety” and “will not mislead consumers”. As mentioned earlier, labeling the production date in advance has an impact on food safety, and labeling in advance will undoubtedly mislead consumers

if there is a production date on the inside of the box, it can not be printed on the outside of the box

but it must be marked in the following cases: when the inner bag can be used as a separate sales unit, for example, when selling in the supermarket, the outer box is removed and sold in a bag by bag manner

if the production date of each inner bag product is different, the production date must be marked separately

reasons for food safety problems:

there are many reasons for food problems. Of course, the most important is that the producers and operators have broken through the moral bottom line driven by interests; Second, there are loopholes in some aspects of supervision, which are also important factors; Third, the small scale, large number, scattered, low technical level and poor personnel quality of the overall operation enterprises are also important factors

to solve this problem, we should pay common attention to the whole society, especially give play to the supervision role of the media, improve consumers’ awareness of safeguarding their rights, put the regulatory authorities in place, and constantly improve the law
