The Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) will host webinars September 21 and September 27 at 2 p.m. ET to discuss changes to the revised "Compliance Guideline for Label Approval," which details the types of labels and labeling that must be submitted to FSIS for approval. The guideline update includes new examples of special statements and claims that must be submitted for approval; factual statements and claims that are generically approved; changes that can be made generically to labels previously approved with special statements and claims; and changes that cannot be made generically to labels previously approved with special statements and claims. The updated guideline also provides new information regarding the process to submit a label application for blanket approval. FSIS is accepting public comments on the revised guideline through October 23, 2017.
