USDA/FSIS RIN: 0583-AD92 Publication ID: Fall 2023 
Title: Changing the Labeling Requirements for Processed Products That Contain Nitrate or Nitrite 

The Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) is proposing to amend its labeling requirements for processed meat and poultry products to establish new definitions for "Cured" and "Uncured." Additionally, FSIS is proposing to remove from the regulations the chart listing approved uses of food ingredients and sources of radiation at 9 CFR 424.21(c) and to instead list approved uses online and in FSIS Directive 7120.1, Safe and Suitable Ingredients Used in the Production of Meat, Poultry and Egg Products. FSIS is proposing these changes in response to a petition. Finally, FSIS is proposing to rescind the regulations at 9 CFR 424.22(b)(1)(i) and (ii)(C) that require FSIS to collect samples of pumped bacon from producing establishments and analyze them for nitrosamines because FSIS no longer conducts this testing.
