FSIS Seeks Comments On Meat Nutrition Labeling

The US Department of Agricultures Food Safety Inspection Service (FSIS) has
said it is seeking comments on proposed nutrition labeling of single ingredient
ground or chopped meat and poultry products.

The nutrition labeling supplemental rule proposal was initially published in the
Federal Register in January 2001, but because of the length of time that has
passed since its publication, the FSIS is giving the public another chance to
comment while taking into account all comments received since 2001, the agency

Specifically, it is requesting comments on fat and lean percentage statements,
and what the possible effects of disallowing a lean percentage statement on
ground and chopped meat products could be. It is also requesting copies of any
studies, surveys or research data related to consumer use and understanding of
fat and lean percentage statements on such products.
