HHS/FDA RIN: 0910-AI74 Publication ID: Spring 2023 
Title: Fish and Shellfish; Amendments to the Canned Tuna Standard of Identity  

FDA is proposing to amend the requirements for the canned tuna standard of identity and standard of fill of container. This proposed rule, if finalized, will modernize and update these food standards in a number of technical ways and is in partial response to a citizen petition submitted by Bumble Bee Foods, LLC, StarKist Co., and Tri-Union Seafoods, LLC (doing business as Chicken of the Sea International).  We tentatively conclude that this action, if finalized, will promote honesty and fair dealing in the interest of consumers.
