FSIS updates listing of safe ingredients for poultry products
USDA's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) has
updated Directive 7120.1, which provides inspection personnel with updated lists
of substances that are accepted as safe and suitable for use in the production
of meat and poultry.
After the publication of the final rule in January 2000, the US Food and
Drug Administration (FDA) and FSIS entered into a Memorandum of Understanding
outlining the procedures that are followed by FDA and FSIS regarding the joint
review of requests for the use of food ingredients and sources of radiation in
meat and poultry products.
Except in certain circumstances, FDA will now list in its regulations food
additives and sources of radiation that are safe and suitable for use in the
production of meat or poultry products.
