On May 24, 2010 USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service issued a draft “Mobile Slaughter Unit Compliance Guide.” The guide was written for owners and managers of a new or existing red meat or poultry MSU who want to operate under federal inspection. On this webinar we explain the guidance and answer questions with the help of a Policy Officer from USDA-FSIS. We also overview FSIS in-person small-plant outreach sessions happening around the country and how to get one in your area. Comments on the draft guidance are due to FSIS by July 24. Find the guide here.
