USDA-FSIS Advance Notice Proposed Rule: Zero Policy Tolerance Extended to Six More E. Coli Strains
(Agriculture And Agri-Food Canada)
We would like to bring to your attention an announcement made by USDA-FSIS on September 13, 2011, regarding an intention to propose rulemaking to extend zero policy tolerance for E. coli to six more non-O157 E. coli strains. … I have attached an advance copy of the proposed rule.
As of today [September 19], the proposed rule has not yet been officially published in the Federal Register. We are monitoring the Federal Register daily, and will send out a follow-up email as soon as there is official publication.
Please note that CFIA officials are currently analyzing the advanced copy of the proposed rule to determine if and how it could impact Canadian industry.
