The “Food Allergy Safety, Treatment, Education, and Research (FASTER) Act of 2021” (H.R. 1202 / S. 578) is under consideration in the U.S. House of Representatives and it may be voted on soon.

On March 3, the U.S. Senate unanimously passed the FASTER Act, moving the legislation one step closer to law.

The FASTER Act would improve the health and safety of those living with food allergies and related disorders. The legislation is a priority for Allergy & Asthma Network and a host of healthcare and patient organizations.

The FASTER Act would:

  • Collect national information on Americans’ exposure to food allergens and prevalence of food allergies to specific allergens;
  • Update allergen labeling laws to include sesame;
  • Expand current guidance on patient experience data to include food allergies; and
  • Study the economic costs of food allergies.
