AskFSIS

Can a food falling into the voluntary program category be labeled both "as consumed" and "as packaged"?

When can dual declarations be made?

Would it be useful for labels of products that are exempt to carry a disclaimer such as "not intended for retail sale" or "for further processing"?

Can values representing more than one cooking procedure be shown in optional columns?
