FSIS Looks to Enhance Label Review Process
USDA's Food Safety and Inspection Service has introduced a web-based label approval system to streamline the review process for meat, poultry and egg product labels. The Label Submission Approval System gives food manufacturers the ability to submit label applications electronically, will flag application submission errors that could delay the approval process and will allow users to track the progress of their submission. USDA Under Secretary for Food Safety Dr. Elisabeth Hagen says this will expedite and simplify the review process - enhancing the agency's ability to ensure accurate information is applied to product labels and reaches consumers quickly. FSIS reviews labels on the products it regulates to ensure they are truthful and not misleading.
