The US Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) is withdrawing the proposed rule, "Prominently Disclosed Product Name Qualifiers," which was published in the Federal Register on November 4, 1992 (57 FR 52596).

In the 1992 proposal, the Agency proposed to remove certain provisions of the meat and poultry products inspection regulations that require that the labelling of meat and poultry products disclose that certain ingredients are present in a product through the use of a phrase that qualifies the product name.

According to a report in the US Federal Register, the FSIS now believes that this proposal is redundant with later Agency initiatives, and that the proposal contains a number of errors. As a consequence FSIS is now withdrawing the proposal and will rely on the initiatives currently under development to resolve the issues that had been raised in the proposed rule.

Comments can be sent to FSIS Docket Clerk, Docket No. 92-005N, Room 102, Cotton Annex Building, 300 12th Street, SW, Washington, DC 20250-3700. Supplementary information can be found in the Federal Register of November 4, 1992, FSIS.
