The Americas -USA: NCC renews petition for cooking instruction changes and regulations establishing labeling requirements for not-ready-to-eat stuffed chicken breast

Almost seven years ago, the National Chicken Council (NCC) petitioned the Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) to adopt regulations establishing labeling requirements for not-ready-to-eat (NRTE) stuffed chicken breast products that may appear to be ready-to-eat (RTE) and to issue a Compliance Guideline for developing and communicating validated cooking instructions for such products.

The NCC is the trade association in the United States that advocates for the companies that raise and process chickens for meat, which are called broilers.
