The USDA’s FSIS is proposing to require that all makers of raw ground beef products keep records in order to further protect consumers by ensuring retailers can trace sources of ground meats. Retail outlets regularly make ground beef by mixing cuts of beef from various sources. This proposal, if finalized, will require them to keep clear records identifying the source, supplier, and names of all materials used in the preparation of raw ground beef products. When foodborne illness outbreaks occur, traceback investigations can be hindered when retail outlets fail to keep clear records that would allow investigators to determine which supplier produced the unsafe product.
