Other Labeling Issues

Meat and poultry products may bear a variety of labels to inform consumers about the contents of the package. All pre-packaged meat and poultry products carry ingredient statements and multi-ingredient products are also required to carry nutrition labeling. 

The Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) regulates the labeling of meat and poultry products.  In addition to features required on meat and poultry product labels (e.g. USDA inspection legend, net contents, etc.), FSIS also approves voluntary labeling statements such as, "grass-fed," and "organic," so long as the information is truthful and considered non-misleading.
