Labeling meat substitutes
FDA and the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) want to encourage more nutritious variations of traditional foods, but are wrestling with how such foods should be labeled.
Responding to a proposed rule by FSIS the American Meat Institute (AMI) agreed with FSIS that minimally and safely altered foods should be allowed to be labeled as the products they resemble. But modified meat and poultry products with different physical and functional properties should be labeled accordingly the group suggested. For example said AMI fat-free hot dogs that don't "grill" as well as traditional franks might be required to say so on their label.
