United States Meat SAFETY

Do you know where your meat products came from?

Who processed the Thanksgiving turkey? The salami in the fridge? Where did your hot dogs or hamburgers get made? Those packages of sliced meat for your sandwiches? That smoked ham came out of what processing plant? Does the discount brand actually come from a major label?

U.S. Meat Safety LETS YOU find the source of your meat products.

Every processed meat sold in interstate commerce in the United States must come from a federally inspected facility. The U.S. Department of Agriculture (U.S.D.A.) assigns each facility a PROCESSING PLANT CODE NUMBER which MUST be included on the packaging.

Most packages carry a Department of Agriculture inspection label as in the samples shown below:

inspected100inspected360

The PROCESSING PLANT IDENTITY NUMBER on the label is shown in THE RED CIRCLES :

code-red

Some manufacturers do not put the stylized label on their packages, but instead put the plant indentifier code in other places, for example near the 'Sell By' or 'Best Before' dates as shown here:bestbefore
