The Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service is seeking comments by April 13 on information collected by the agency to ensure that meat, poultry and egg products are accurately labeled. To control the manufacture of marking devices bearing official marks, FSIS requires that official meat and poultry establishments and the manufacturers of such marking devices complete FSIS Form 5200-7, Authorization Certificate, FSIS Form 7234-1, Application for Approval of Labels, Marking or Device, and FSIS Form 8822-4, Request for Label Reconsideration. FSIS believes that if this information is not collected the effectiveness of the meat, poultry and egg products inspection program would be reduced.
