USDA/FNS RIN: 0584-AD76 Publication ID: Spring 2010 
Title: Revisions and Clarifications in Requirements for the Processing of Donated Foods 
Abstract: This final rule revises processing requirements to reduce the paperwork burden and workload and to more fully integrate donated foods with commercial business practices. It revises current regulations to: (1) Allow processing agreements or contracts of up to five years duration, rather than the current one year, with an option for two one-year extensions; (2) allow substitution of donated beef and pork with like commercial foods of U.S. origin and of equal or better quality; (3) remove the verification of end product sales through commercial distributors; (4) reduce independent CPA audit requirements for multi-State processors by revising upward the donated food value thresholds that determine the required frequency of such audits; and (5) require in-State processors to obtain an independent CPA audit every three years, and remove the requirement that distributing agencies conduct an on-site review of such processors at least once every two years. Lastly, the rule rewrites and restructures processing regulations in a "plain language" format to make them easier to understand for the general public (05-005).
