USDA's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) is soliciting public comments on its draft Establishment-Specific Data Release Strategic Plan (the draft plan). The draft plan shares data on federally inspected meat and poultry establishments with the public. FSIS developed the plan in response to memoranda released by President Obama and the Office of Management and Budget that requested increased data sharing; an Executive Order for agencies to develop plans that make information available to the public; recommendations from the National Advisory Committee on Meat and Poultry Inspection; and a review by the National Research Council. Public comments are invited during a 60-day period, once the plan is officially published in the Federal Register.
