The National Advisory Committee on Meat and Poultry Inspection (NACMPI) will meet virtually on September 27 and 28, 2021, from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. EST each day. FSIS will present two sets of charges to the Committee. FSIS will ask the Committee to consider how FSIS should clarify the Agency’s positions on the custom and retail exemptions to ensure that meat and poultry produced under the exemptions are safe, wholesome, and correctly labeled and packaged. Additionally, FSIS will ask the Committee to consider actions FSIS should take to prevent and reduce illnesses associated with the handling or consumption of frozen, raw, stuffed not ready-to-eat (NRTE) poultry products, which may be breaded and par-fried and may appear ready-to-eat (RTE) to consumers.
