USDA labeling can be confusing with many different sources for rules and regulations.  USDA no longer reviews generic labels for approval and local inspectors are giving added scrutiny to labels.  Therefore, the risk of Noncompliance Records is greater than ever. Learn the fundamentals of USDA labeling. This workshop will cover:

  1. Regulatory Jurisdictions for Food Products
  2. Food Standards-each standard describes regulatory requirements for a product bearing that name, including:
  3. Ingredients permitted and limits on their use
  4. Meat/poultry/fat or other food requirements and limits
  5. Processing standards or specifications (processing times and temperatures)
  6. Key Sources of Regulatory Information
  7. Label Approval and Inspection Requirements
  8. Submission Requirements
  9. Required Labeling Features
  10. Special Labeling Requirements for Meat and Poultry
