(North American Meat Institute)

The Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) is proposing to amend the federal meat and poultry products inspection regulations to eliminate prescriptive requirements governing the manufacture of uninspected products, such as pet food, in edible product areas of official establishments. The proposed rule provides the manufacture of uninspected products in official establishments must not result in the adulteration of meat and poultry products, create insanitary conditions whereby meat and poultry products may be adulterated or prevent or otherwise interfere with inspection or other program tasks performed by FSIS personnel. The proposed rule also would allow official establishments to manufacture these products outside the hours of inspection. Comments will be accepted 30 days after the proposed rule publishes in the Federal Register.
