The Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) has issued Notice 41:11: Discontinuation of FSIS Form 10,240-1, Production Information on Post-Lethality Exposed Ready-to-Eat Products.
This notice informs inspection program personnel (IPP) that FSIS will be phasing out the use of FSIS Form 10,240-1, Production Information on Post-Lethality Exposed Ready-to-Eat (RTE) Products, and the form will be discontinued as of September 30, 2011.
Although FSIS Form 10,240-1 will be discontinued, FSIS will continue to use the information from the form to determine FSIS sampling frequencies until the Public Health Information System (PHIS) is operational in all establishments. Therefore, this notice also instructs IPP to review the production information for RTE products and advise the establishments to submit an updated FSIS Form 10,240-1 by September 30, 2011, if the information is not accurate or current.
