USDA/FSIS RIN: 0583-AD78 Publication ID: Spring 2021 
Title: Prior Label Approval System: Expansion of Generic Label Approval 

The Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) is amending its labeling regulations to expand the categories of meat and poultry product labels that it will deem generically approved and thus not required to be submitted to FSIS. These reforms will reduce the regulatory burden on producers seeking to bring products to market, as well as the Agency costs expended to evaluate the labels.
