United States of America (USA/111: Eggs (HS 0407))
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is proposing to amend the agency's food labeling regulations to permit the egg industry to place the safe handling statement for shell eggs on the inside lid of egg cartons if the statement "Keep Refrigerated'' appears on the principal display panel (PDP) or information panel. This proposed rule, if finalized, will provide the industry greater flexibility in the placement of safe handling instructions on egg cartons, while continuing to provide consumers with this important information. This proposed action is in response to numerous requests from the egg industry.
