The US National Advisory Committee on Meat and Poultry Inspection (NACMPI) is to host a public meeting next week.
The two-day meeting on 16 and 17 January will review and discuss strengthening verification activities relating to veal and categorizing FSIS regulations as public health regulations.
FSIS test results show veal trimmings and ground beef produced from veal have a higher percentage of Shiga toxin-producing E.coli than trimmings and ground beef produced from other cattle classes.
FSIS is seeking feedback from NACMPI on improvements to its verification activities of sanitary dressing and interventions and its compliance guidance in addressing veal slaughter operations.
The agency is also seeking input on the criteria and feedback on the approach on the steps for identifying regulations that are most closely related to public health outcomes.
