Nutritional Labeling for Meat Becomes Mandatory

Thu, 1 Mar 2012 17:21:03 EST

The Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) is now requiring nutritional labeling of major cuts of single-ingredient, raw meat and poultry products. The new regulation includes all ground or chopped products, with or without seasonings. According to CNN, the rule affects 40 percent of the most popular cuts of meat, including chicken breast, steaks, pork chops, roasts, lamb, and veal.
 
In 1993, the Department of Agriculture made nutrition labeling voluntary for many types of raw meats, but now the agency believes mandatory labeling is warranted. The labels would indicate products' total calories, calories from fat, levels of saturated fat, protein, cholesterol, sodium, and iron.
 
If nutrition facts are not on the package, the new rule demands that the nutritional information is displayed on signs or posters in the area where the meat is sold.
 
'EMSL Analytical offers FDA compliant nutritional analysis for labeling needs in its state-of-art food testing laboratory,' states EMSL's National Food Microbiology Supervisor, Joy Dell'Aringa, M.S., R.M. (N.R.M.), C.F.S.P. 'Our nutritional analysis can be performed for virtually any food type, including meat and poultry, and we test for mandatory nutrients, such as protein and iron.
 
EMSL Analytical's nutritional analysis method can be used for:
-          general labeling needs
-          validating manufacturer / supplier nutritional information
-          validating data generated from software-based database analysis
-          testing unique or exotic ingredients or processing techniques
-          analyzing food for animals (pet food and agricultural feeds)
