Natural or organic label claims are used on food products to describe how they were grown, raised, and/or processed. Two government agencies oversee the production and labeling of food in the United States to ensure that label claims are truthful and not misleading. The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) is responsible for overseeing meat, poultry, egg products (not shell eggs) and catfish. The Food and Drug Administration regulates all other food products including shell eggs.
