Revision of the Nutrition Facts Labels for Meat and Poultry Products and Updating Certain Reference Amounts Customarily ConsumedProposed Rule2016-2927201/19/2017DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTUREAgriculture DepartmentConsistent with the recent changes that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) finalized, the Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) is proposing to amend the nutrition labeling requirements for meat (including fish of the orde … Consistent with the recent changes that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) finalized, the Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) is proposing to amend the nutrition labeling requirements for meat (including fish of the order Siluriformes) and poultry products to better reflect the most recent scientific research and dietary recommendations and to improve the presentation of nutrition information to assist consumers in maintaining healthy dietary practices. FSIS is proposing to update the list of nutrients that are required or permitted to be declared; provide updated Daily Reference Values (DRVs) and Reference Daily Intake (RDI) values that are based on current dietary recommendations from consensus reports; and amend the labeling requirements for foods represented or purported to be specifically for children under the age of 4 years and pregnant women and lactating women and establish nutrient reference values specifically for these population subgroups. FSIS is also proposing to revise the format and appearance of the Nutrition Facts label; amend the definition of a single-serving container; require dual-column labeling for certain containers; and update and modify several reference amounts customarily consumed (RACCs or reference amounts). Finally, FSIS is proposing to consolidate the nutrition labeling regulations for meat and poultry products into a new Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) part.revision-of-the-nutrition-facts-labels-for-meat-and-poultry-products-and-updating-certain-referenceFR-Doc-2016-29272

Elimination of Trichinae Control Regulations and Consolidation of Thermally Processed, Commercially Sterile RegulationsProposed Rule2016-0657603/28/2016DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTUREAgriculture DepartmentThe Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) is proposing to amend the Federal meat inspection regulations to eliminate the requirements for both ready-to-eat (RTE) and not-ready-to-eat (NRTE) pork and pork products to be treated to … The Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) is proposing to amend the Federal meat inspection regulations to eliminate the requirements for both ready-to-eat (RTE) and not-ready-to-eat (NRTE) pork and pork products to be treated to destroy trichinae (Trichinella spiralis) because the regulations are inconsistent with the Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) regulations, and because these prescriptive regulations are no longer necessary. If this supplemental proposed rule is finalized, FSIS will end its Trichinella Approved Laboratory Program (TALP program) for the evaluation and approval of non-Federal laboratories that use the pooled sample digestion technique to analyze samples for the presence of trichinae. FSIS is also proposing to consolidate the regulations on thermally processed, commercially sterile meat and poultry products (i.e., canned food products containing meat or poultry).elimination-of-trichinae-control-regulations-and-consolidation-of-thermally-processed-commerciallyFR-Doc-2016-06576

The methodology used to calculate and implement the fees charged by AMS user-funded programs would be specified in the regulations. Currently, AMS publishes separate rules for each of the service fees it collects. The fees are calculated using formulas to account for all costs incurred by AMS in providing these services. Each year, fees would be announced in a notice in the Federal Register by June 1 and take effect at the start of the fiscal year, crop year, or as required by specific laws. This would provide greater transparency to the customers we serve as to how the fees are derived. The standardized formulas would be used to calculate fees that AMS charges for providing voluntary grading, inspection, certification, auditing and laboratory services for a variety of agricultural commodities including meat and poultry, fruits and vegetables, eggs, dairy products, and cotton and tobacco. The fees would also apply to those persons requesting such services including producers, handlers, processors, importers and exporters. Fees charged for inspection of fruits, vegetables, and specialty crops subject to the Agricultural Marketing Agreement Act of 1937 also would be affected by this rule. Provisions of this proposed rule would not supersede rates established by Memorandum of Understanding, Marketing Orders, or by cooperative agreements already in place. Furthermore, the cotton program would continue to consult with its industry before rates are established.process-for-establishing-rates-charged-for-ams-servicesFR-Doc-2014-21188

Furthermore, it revises the regulations so applicants entering into an in-plant inspection contract with the Agricultural Marketing Service (AMS) will incur the costs for the plant survey and sanitation inspection.

Also affected are the fees charged to persons required to have inspections on imported commodities in accordance with the Agricultural Marketing Agreement Act of 1937. In addition, various editorial changes are being made to enhance clarity. These revisions are necessary in order to recover, as nearly as practicable, the costs of performing inspection services under the Agricultural Marketing Act of 1946 and to ensure the program's financial stability.https://www.federalregister.gov/documents/2007/03/07/E7-3937/processed-fruits-and-vegetablesFR-Doc-E7-3937

Performance Standards for the Production of Processed Meat and Poultry ProductsProposed Rule01-442002/27/2001DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTUREAgriculture DepartmentThe Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) is proposing to amend the Federal meat and poultry inspection regulations by establishing food safety performance standards for all ready-to-eat (RTE) and all partially heat-treated meat an … The Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) is proposing to amend the Federal meat and poultry inspection regulations by establishing food safety performance standards for all ready-to-eat (RTE) and all partially heat-treated meat and poultry products. The proposed performance standards set forth levels of pathogen reduction and limits on pathogen growth that official meat and poultry establishments must achieve in order to produce unadulterated products, but allow the use of customized, plant-specific processing procedures. The proposed RTE performance standards apply to all RTE meat and poultry products, which can be categorized as follows: Dried products (e.g., beef or poultry jerky); salt-cured products (e.g. country ham); fermented products (e.g., salami and Lebanon bologna); cooked and otherwise processed products (e.g., beef and chicken burritos, corned beef, pastrami, poultry rolls, and turkey franks); and thermally- processed, commercially sterile products (e.g., canned spaghetti with meat balls and canned corned beef hash). Although FSIS routinely samples and tests some RTE products for the presence of pathogens prior to distribution, there are no specific regulatory pathogen reduction requirements for most of these products. The proposed performance standards will help ensure the safety of these products; give establishments the incentive and flexibility to adopt innovative, science-based food safety processing procedures and controls; and provide objective, measurable standards that can be verified by Agency oversight. FSIS also is proposing environmental testing requirements intended to reduce the incidence of Listeria monocytogenes in RTE meat and poultry products. Specifically, FSIS is proposing to require establishments that produce RTE meat and poultry products to test food contact surfaces for Listeria spp. to verify that they are controlling the presence of L. monocytogenes within their processing environments. Establishments that have developed and implemented HACCP controls for L. monocytogenes would be exempt from these testing requirements. Finally, FSIS is proposing to eliminate its regulations that require that both RTE and not-ready-to eat pork and products containing pork be treated to destroy trichina (Trichinella spiralis). These requirements are inconsistent with HACCP and some will be unnecessary if FSIS makes final the proposed performance standards for RTE meat and poultry products.https://www.federalregister.gov/documents/2001/02/27/01-4420/performance-standards-for-the-production-of-processed-meat-and-poultry-productsFR-Doc-01-4420
