Sec.  100.155  Salt and iodized salt.


    (a) For the purposes of this section, the term iodized salt or 
iodized table salt is designated as the name of salt for human food use 
to which iodide has been added in the form of cuprous iodide or 
potassium iodide permitted by Sec. Sec.  184.1265 and 184.1634 of this 
chapter. In the labeling of such products, all words in the name shall 
be equal in prominence and type size. The statement ``This salt supplies 
iodide, a necessary nutrient'' shall appear on the label immediately 
following the name and shall be in letters which are not less in height 
than those required for the declaration of the net quantity of contents 
as specified in Sec.  101.105 of this chapter.
    (b) Salt or table salt for human food use to which iodide has not 
been added shall bear the statement, ``This salt does not supply iodide, 
a necessary nutrient.'' This statement shall appear immediately 
following the name of the food and shall be in letters which are not 
less in height than those required for the declaration of the net 
quantity of contents as specified in Sec.  101.105 of this chapter.
    (c) Salt, table salt, iodized salt, or iodized table salt to which 
anticaking agents have been added may bear in addition to the ingredient 
statement designating the anticaking agent(s), a label statement 
describing the characteristics imparted by such agent(s) (for example, 
``free flowing''), providing such statement does not appear with greater 
prominence or in type size larger than the statements which immediately 
follow the name of the food as required by paragraphs (a) and (b) of 
this section.
    (d) Individual serving-sized packages containing less than \1/2\ 
ounce and packages containing more than 2\1/2\ pounds

of a food described in this section shall be exempt from declaration of 
the statements which paragraphs (a) and (b) of this section require 
immediately following the name of the food. Such exemption shall not 
apply to the outer container or wrapper of a multiunit retail package.
    (e) All salt, table salt, iodized salt, or iodized table salt in 
packages intended for retail sale shipped in interstate commerce 18 
months after the date of publication of this statement of policy in the 
Federal Register, shall be labeled as prescribed by this section; and if 
not so labeled, the Food and Drug Administration will regard them as 
misbranded within the meaning of sections 403 (a) and (f) of the Federal 
Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act.
