Grab your pens! Letters needed to make sure feds define “beef” and “meat” as products coming from animals



The U.S. Cattlemen’s Association recently filed a petition with the USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) to make sure the definition of “beef” and “meat” is that product that comes from animals that are raised and slaughtered.

FSIS is accepting letters of support on the petition until April 10. Letters of support can be sent to: 

Attn: Ms.Mary Poretta, Positions Manager; Mr. Matthew Michael, Director, Issuances Staff, Office of Policy and Program Development,  USDA, Food Safety Inspection Service, 1400 Independence Avenue, SW, Washington D.C. 20250-3700
