FMI-12092014_324-Edit_WEBIn this webinar, USDA FSIS discusses what is required as part of the final rule, “Descriptive Designation of Raw Meat and Poultry Products Containing Added Solutions.” 

The final rule amends FSIS regulations to require the use of a descriptive designation as part of the product name on labels of raw meat and poultry products that contain added solutions and that do not meet a standard of identity. The final rule applies to both inspected establishments and retail stores that produce non-standardized product containing added solution. As an initial matter, the rule applies to non-standardized raw meat or poultry products to which solutions are added after post-evisceration processing by methods such as injection, marinating, tumbling, etc. This includes raw meat and poultry products containing added solutions that have been sliced or cut up and re-packaged at retail or another official establishment. The effective date of the final rule is January 1, 2016.
