FSIS Extends Comment Period on Proposed Rule to Establish Common Name for Enhanced Products

(American Meat Institute)

The Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) is extending the comment period on a proposed rule announced this summer to establish common or usual names for raw meat and poultry products that include injections, marinades or have otherwise incorporated added solutions (sometimes referred to as “enhanced products”).

FSIS will publish a Federal Register notice reopening the comment period for 60 days, beginning when the notice publishes. In the interim, FSIS will continue to accept comments after the initial deadline of September 26.

AMI in August wrote to FSIS to request a 60 day extension of the comment period for this proposed rule.

Comments can be submitted through the Federal eRulemaking Portal at http://www.regulations.gov/, or mailed to the USDA, FSIS, Docket Clearance Unit, 8-164, Patriots Plaza III, 355 E St., SW, Washington, DC 20024. All comments must identify docket number FSIS-2010-0012.

To view the proposed rule, go to http://www.fsis.usda.gov/oppde/rdad/FRPubs/2010-0012.htm.
