USDA/FSIS RIN: 0583-AD43 Publication ID: Spring 2014 
Title: Common or Usual Name for Raw Meat and Poultry Products Containing Added Solutions  
Abstract: FSIS is developing final regulations to establish a common or usual name for raw meat and poultry products that contain added solutions, and that do not meet a standard of identity. FSIS proposed to amend the meat and poultry labeling regulations to require that the common or usual name must include an accurate description of the raw meat or poultry component, the percentage of added solution, and the individual ingredients or multi-ingredient components in the solution listed in descending order of prominence by weight. The Agency also proposed that the print for all words in the common or usual name appears in a single easy-to-read type style and color, and on a single color-contrasting background. The Agency also intends to remove the standard of identity for "ready-to-cook poultry products to which solutions are added" (9 CFR 381.169).
