The Agricultural Marketing Service (AMS) is proposing to amend certain regulations governing meats, prepared meats and meat products. The amendments, if adopted, will revise several administrative and organizational references, clarify AMS action as it relates to the withdrawal or denial of service, update the official shields and grademarks associated with the grading service and designate the use of instrument grading equipment as a means of determining official grades on beef and lamb carcasses. Comments on the proposed amendments are due to AMS April 8, 2019.
