The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA’s) Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) issued a Constituent Update announcing the Agency temporarily is exercising enforcement discretion to provide labeling flexibilities for redirecting to retail meat and poultry products originally intended for food service.

This memorandum describes the circumstances under which products may be moved to retail with certain labeling deviations.
