FSIS Updates Compliance Guidelines On Allergen Control
FSIS has revised its Compliance Guidelines for Allergens and Ingredients of Public Health Concern, which provide recommendations for identifying and preventing many of the allergen-related hazards that have led to a number of recent recalls. FSIS first released the guidelines in April 2014 and issued the revision in response to comments received from industry and other stakeholders. FSIS plans to provide outreach to the meat and poultry industry on the Compliance Guidelines by conducting webinar sessions. This memorandum summarizes the key changes made in the revised guidelines.
