Egg Products HACCP Regulation Could Come Next Month

July 11, 2019

If the Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) meets its internal goals, a final regulation to convert egg products regulation to HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point) principles could be published next month. The federal government’s Unified Regulatory Agenda identifies August as the month to publish a final rule to modify egg product inspection regulations. The proposed rule was published February 13, 2018, and FSIS received comments from the Further Processors Division of United Egg Association as well as from other groups and companies. FSIS first stated its intention to move toward a HACCP regulation for egg products some 20 years ago.
