Nutrition Labeling of Single-Ingredient Meats Coming January 1
The USDA Food Safety Inspection Service (FSIS) published a final rule that will required nutritional labeling on major cuts of single-ingredient raw meat and poultry products and on all ground or chopped meat and poultry products (unless an exemption applies). The rule also establishes criteria for making a lean percentage statement. The new rule takes effect on January 1, 2012. FSIS has published an informational Web site that includes the final rule, questions and answers, and a PowerPoint presentation.
