USDA's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) canceled and reissued FSIS Notice 21-14, " Prescribed Treatment to Destroy Trichinae in Pork, and Products Containing Pork." The notice clarifies labeling requirements and inspection program personnel (IPP) verification responsibilities. The notice also instructs IPP regarding ways to verify that establishments address trichinae during the production of products specified in, " Prescribed Treatment of Pork and Product Containing Pork to Destroy Trichinae ." The instructions in this notice do not apply to pork carcasses during slaughter or to products that are rendered free of trichinae because of being fully cooked during production.
