Meat industry formally adopts “may also contain” labeling

Producers of beef, pork and other meat products have begun listing more specific ingredients that occasionally appear in the mix.

Much like labeling that reads “May also contain safflower, canola and/or tropical oils”, the new labels say “May also contain growth hormones, genetically modified organisms, needles or partial needles, entrails, lips, hooves, hair, rodent-contributed material within acceptable guidelines, and other substances not specified”.

An industry spokesman, who declined to give his name, said the particulars will be available in the fine print as appropriate, and that this move signals a triumph for the virtue of truth in packaging.
