FSIS to test some meat products for melamine


By Lisa M. Keefe on 12/12/2008


FSIS will test those meat and poultry products that contain milk-derived ingredients such as non-fat dried milk, casein, whey, evaporated milk, and milk powder. They will test five types of retail products:

  • Baby food (containing a significant amount of meat or poultry products);
  • Cooked sausages (including hot dogs or frankfurters with and without cheese products);
  • Breaded chicken (bite sized morsels or nuggets with and without cheese products);
  • Meatballs;
  • Meat and poultry wrapped in dough and pizza (including calzones).

The Agency intends to collect and test a total of 45 samples per week over a 12-week period. Testing is expected to begin sometime before the Christmas holiday.
