Unified Agenda 0583-AC60

Nutrition Labeling of Single-Ingredient Products and Ground or Chopped Meat and Poultry Products

Summary

FSIS is amending the Federal meat and poultry products inspection regulations to require nutrition labeling for the major cuts of single-ingredient, raw meat and poultry products, either on their label or at their point-of-purchase, unless an exemption applies. FSIS is also amending its regulations to require nutrition information on the labels of all ground or chopped meat and poultry products, with or without added seasonings, unless an exemption applies. The requirements for ground or chopped products will be consistent with those for multi-ingredient products.

FSIS is also amending the nutrition labeling regulations to provide that when a ground or chopped product does not meet the regulatory criteria to be labeled "low fat," a lean percentage statement may be included on the label or in labeling, as long as a statement of the fat percentage that meets the specific criteria also is displayed on the label or in labeling.
