What is required on the labels of meat products?

The requirements for labels on meat and poultry products are found in the "A GUIDE TO FEDERAL FOOD LABELING REQUIREMENTS FOR MEAT, POULTRY, AND EGG PRODUCTS". Meat and poultry cut in a custom-exempt facility must be labeled “not for retail sale”. Any meat processing done under a special process agreement in a retail meat market must follow the labeling requirements listed in the Missouri Food Code sections 3-502.11 or 3-502.12 and 3-602.11, in accordance with the plan submitted to the appropriate health department.
