USDA to require nutrition labeling on meat and poultry products

5/30/2000-In his weekly radio address on Saturday, President Clinton announced that USDA will require nutrition
labeling for meat and poultry products, including all ground or chopped meat. Under the rule to be proposed this summer, retailers would be required to provide nutrition information through product labels or at the point of purchase by posting signs or making information readily available in brochures or leaflets. The required information would include fat, calories and cholesterol content. Providing such information currently is voluntary, but fewer than 60% of retailers did so last year.
