Webinar to Address New Meat Labeling Rule

Confused about the new requirements for nutritional labels on meat? You're not alone. Join NMPAN and FSIS on October 4 to get your questions answered. The webinar is free and you don't even have to leave the comfort of your own computer.

Nutritional Labeling of Meat and Poultry: the New Rules – October 4

USDA's Food Safety and Inspection Service finalized new rules last year about nutritional labeling of meat and poultry products. The new rules are effective on January 1, 2012 -- that means everyone must be in compliance. Are you ready? If not -- or if you are, but still have questions -- join us on this webinar.

FSIS policy and labeling division staff will explain the rules and what you need to know to comply. Also, Brynn Kepler of the American Association of Meat Processors (AAMP) will tell us about resources they've developed for processors to help with compliance.

There will be plenty time for your questions.

Date: Tuesday, October 4, 2011
Time: 10am Pacific / 1pm Eastern
