Cancer-Free Label Act of 2012 - Directs the head of each federal agency that regulates a covered product to establish a program to permit the labeling of such a product that does not contain any carcinogens as \"Cancer-Free.\" Defines a \"covered product\" to mean any product offered for sale that is:
(1) regulated by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the Department of Agriculture (USDA), or the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC); and
(2) intended for individual or residential use. Requires such agency heads to coordinate to develop an easily recognizable label:
(1) to be affixed to a covered product to signify that it has been approved for \"Cancer-Free\" labeling, and
(2) to include a notice stating that \"This product does not contain known or likely carcinogens that increase your risk of cancer.\" Prohibits the introduction or offering for introduction into interstate commerce of a covered product affixed with a \"Cancer-Free\" label if:
