USDA Delays New Ground/Chopped Meat Labeling Enforcement

The USDA has announced a two-month delay in enforcement action for nutritional labeling of ground or chopped meat or poultry products and single-ingredient products to March 1, 2012, instead of Jan. 1.

Nutrition information for these products will be required either on their label or at the point-of-purchase (POP) by either sign or brochure, unless an exemption applies.

The Nutrition Labeling Coalition for Meat and Poultry requested a six-month delay in a letter to USDA on Aug. 12, 2011.

USDA, however, said the two-month delay “will ensure that industry has sufficient time to comply with the final rule.”

The food industry had argued that it would take six months to make point-of-purchase and nutrition facts panel materials available and conduct Food Safey and Inspection Service (FSIS) webinars as well as make any necessary technology changes to scales, etc.

After the past two years of uncertainty and changed plans due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we all hoped that 2022 might bring back a sense of normalcy.

However, with government and independent data confirming 40 years of inflation highs and Wall Street entering a bear market, grocers now have new challenges to face.

In this webinar, we will hear from Todd Taylor of Neighborhood Fresh and Darlene Murphy of Metcalfe’s Market about why shopper loyalty is so important in this time of inflation.
