FSIS is announcing the availability of an updated fact sheet on food product dating. FSIS is also responding to comments received on the version of the fact sheet that it announced in the December Constituent Update.

In the United States, approximately 30 percent of the food supply is wasted. Additionally, water, energy, and labor used to produce wasted food could have been used for other purposes. The Agency is responsible for ensuring that the nation's commercial supply of meat, poultry, and egg products is safe, wholesome, not adulterated, and correctly labeled and packaged. Consequently, FSIS is uniquely positioned to address the problem of wasted meat, poultry, and processed egg products by working with Federal, State, tribal and local governments, faith-based institutions, industry, and consumers to raise awareness of food waste issues, simplify requirements for donation, [ 3 ] and share best practices.

As FSIS explained in the fact sheet, except for infant formula, [ 6 ] product dating is not required by Federal regulation. The use of different phrases to describe quality dates has likely caused consumer confusion and has led to the disposal of food, just because it is past the date printed on the package, food that is otherwise wholesome and safe. After carefully reviewing all comments received, FSIS made minor changes to the fact sheet. FSIS received 46 comments on the version of the fact sheet from individual consumers, registered dietitians, employees of food assistance centers, an employee of a food processing company, the chairman of a county legislature, a food inspector, a State environmental protection agency, a trade association representing the meat industry, and a policy group associated with a law school.

A summary of issues raised by commenters and the Agency's responses follows. A policy group that supported the fact sheet also noted that ReFED, a non-profit organization committed to reducing U. Several commenters argued that FSIS should go a step further and require food product dating labels. As noted above, members of industry are already taking steps to standardize food product dating labels on their own.

Additionally, the magnitude in , diversity, and complexity of products that exist in the marketplace make it difficult to require safety-based consume-by date labels. Food safety after the date of food production largely depends on the environmental, storage, and distribution conditions of the food.

Moreover, if companies decided to use conservative safety-based consume-by dates, these labels may cause an increase in the amount of food that is wasted. Response: FSIS recognizes that because food product labels are small it is important to convey information clearly and concisely. Comment: A trade association representing the meat industry stated that shelf-life in ready-to-eat RTE products is often based on controlling Listeria monocytogenes Lm , not organoleptic concerns.

Response: FSIS disagrees with the comment. While some establishments may use date labeling to manage safety of refrigerated RTE meat and poultry products—not all establishments do. Only establishments producing products with an antimicrobial agent or process must establish the shelf-life of the product in order to document, either in their HACCP plan, Sanitation Standard Operating Procedures, or prerequisite program, that their antimicrobial agent or process is effective in suppressing or limiting growth of Lm see 9 CFR Comment: One consumer was confused by the statement that except for infant formula, product dating is not required by Federal regulations.

Comments: Several commenters stated that FSIS could do more to ensure that safe, wholesome food is not wasted by providing consumer education about the meaning of date labels. Response: Now that the fact sheet is finalized, FSIS intends to include more information about food product dating in the Agency's presentations and webinars on labeling and labeling features. Public awareness of all segments of rulemaking and policy development is important.
