To collect information on the labeling, marking, and packaging of meat, poultry, and egg products. To control the manufacture of marking devices bearing official marks, FSIS requires official meat and poultry establishments and the manufacturers of such marking devices to submit an Authorization Certificate form to the Agency. To ensure that meat, poultry, and egg products are accurately labeled, FSIS approves meat, poultry, and egg products labeling. To ensure that packaging materials do not adulterate meat or poultry products, FSIS requires a written guaranty that the packaging materials conform to Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (21 U.S.C. 301, et. seq.) regulations for food contact materials. FSIS also requires establishments that use advanced poultry/bone separation machinery and recovery systems to have controls in place, including recordkeeping, to ensure that products do not exceed the calcium level standard.
