USDA Label Submissions
The Labeling and Program Delivery Division (LPDD) within the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) develops and provides labeling guidance, policies and inspection methods and administers programs to protect consumers from misbranded and economically adulterated meat, poultry, and egg products which ensure that all labels are truthful and not misleading. Labeling includes all forms of product identification, health-related claims, net weight, species identification and nutrition.
LSAS is a web-based software application that integrates and implements a secure electronic label application process for establishments to submit label applications and appeals. LPDD launched the Label Submission Approval System (LSAS) on May 22, 2012. In this course, you will learn how to properly use the LSAS software to submit label applications and appeals to the USDA.
