Title: Elimination of Dual Weight Labeling Requirements for Certain Meat and Poultry Products 

The Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) is amending its labeling regulations to remove provisions that require packages of meat or poultry products that contain at least one pound or pint, but less than four pounds or one gallon, to express the net weight or net contents as a dual declaration on the product label. Conforming amendments will also be made to regulations currently providing exceptions to the dual declaration requirements for random weight, small, and multi-unit packages, as well as certain packages containing margarine and bacon (9 CFR 317.2(h)(9) and (12); 9 CFR 381.121 (c)(8) and (9)).
