Food safety regulator lifts ban on three poultry additives

Last May, the FSIS issued a proposal to not simply allow specific issues of the three additives, but to lift the prohibition all together. In that proposal, the agency noted two petitions filed by Kraft Foods and Kemin Food Technologies that claimed the substances do not increase shelf life or “conceal or mask damage or inferiority.”

The information and data provided by the two companies, the agency said, convinced it to move forward with the new rules.

They will become effective on May 7.
