FDA is withdrawing CPG Sec. 540.575 because the CPG does not provide FDA staff with current agency regulatory action guidance relating to decomposition in fresh and frozen fish.

FDA has developed a draft CPG Sec. 540.370 Fish and Fishery Products—Decomposition (draft CPG Sec. 540.370) to provide guidance for FDA staff relating to decomposition in fresh and frozen fish as well as other fishery products. Draft CPG Sec. 540.370, when final, will provide FDA staff with current regulatory action guidance. Draft CPG Sec. 540.370 is available for comment, as indicated in the notice published elsewhere in this issue of the Federal Register.
