Authorized Labels and Manufacturers

CN numbers that appear on the valid list apply to the CN logo and crediting statement only. It is the manufacturer's responsibility to ensure that the product label meets all over federal labeling requirements.

USDA’s Agricultural Marketing Service (AMS) has published a list of manufacturers that have met FNS's quality control program requirements for the CN labeling program.

The following inspection directories, along with the Establishment (EST) notations from technical assistance memorandum TA 05-2010, may be used to cross reference the EST number with the manufacturer’s physical address:

These lists are updated and re-posted monthly; the data will not reflect newly authorized manufacturers and labels. Additionally, the product name on the food carton with the CN label may not necessarily match the product description from the list.

Note: As of July 1, 2024, “beans, peas, and lentils” is the term used to describe the vegetable subgroup formerly known as “legumes.” Manufacturers may continue to use the term “legumes vegetables” on approved CN labels. At the time of application renewal or resubmission, manufacturers must update the term to “beans, peas, and lentils.”

If you have questions about this information or about a particular product, please email or call the AMS-CN Labeling Program Operations Office at (202) 720-9939.
