National Advisory Committee on Meat and Poultry Inspection
The National Advisory Committee on Meat and Poultry Inspection (NACMPI) will hold a public meeting on May 23-24, 2006 to discuss issues related to building a more robust risk-based inspection system. Subcommittees will also meet on May 23, 2006, to discuss issues covered during the full committee session.
Availability of Lists of Retail Consignees During Meat or Poultry Product Recalls
The Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) is reopening and extending the comment period for the proposed rulemaking ``Availability of Lists of Retail Consignees During Meat or Poultry Product Recalls,'' which closed on May 8, 2006. This action is based upon requests made by individuals who attended the Agency's April 24, 2006, public meeting to solicit comments on the proposal.
The Use of Ingredients of Potential Public Health Concern
The Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) is publishing this document to inform establishments that prepare meat and poultry products of the need to ensure that they maintain proper control over the use of ingredients, especially those that present a potential public health concern, and over the ingredient labeling of their products. Establishments should ensure that their systems provide such control as part of their next reassessment of their HACCP systems. FSIS invites comments on the matters presented in this document.
