AskFSIS

Would a ham product with a part sold at retail and a part sold by the company in gift packs which also contain pancake mix and a syrup produced by a different company be considered one product?

If a company qualifies for the small business exemption based on number of employees produces a product sold at retail in less than the allowed poundage and to food service in over the allowed poundage, is the product sold at retail exempt?

Safe & Suitable Ingredient Use

If a company qualifies for the small business exemption based on number of employees and produces a product for food service at over allowed amounts but sells part of the product to its own employees, must the product be labeled?

Guidance for meat, poultry, egg product, or retail and foodservice establishments in an area affected by a Natural Disaster

For product imported into the U.S., does the exporter or the importer get the exemption?

Does the small business exemption apply to foreign firms exporting to the U.S. and on what basis- total production of a product or only production for the export market?
