HHS/FDA RIN: 0910-AF61 Publication ID: Spring 2007 
Title: Label Requirement for Food That Has Been Refused Admission Into the United States 
Abstract: The proposed rule would require owners or consignees to label imported food that is refused entry into the United States. The label would read, "UNITED STATES: REFUSED ENTRY." The proposal would describe the label's characteristics (such as its size) and processes for verifying that the label has been affixed properly. We are taking this action to prevent the introduction of unsafe food into the United States, to facilitate the examination of imported food, and to implement section 308 of the Public Health Security and Bioterrorism Preparedness and Response Act of 2002 (the Bioterrorism Act) (Pub. L. 107-188).
