Allergen control is an important issue for all food manufacturers. In the meat and poultry industry, USDA regulates and inspects meat and poultry processing and requires that all ingredients be declared on ingredient statements. USDA regulates all meat and poultry package labels and will consider permitting non-misleading statements and symbols on packages as further guidance to consumers about potential allergen issues.
