The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) is charged with protecting the safety of many areas of the U.S. food supply, including processing and distribution of meats, poultry, and eggs. Many of the principals that apply to FDA regulated products, production and transportation apply also to USDA regulated products, such as the importance of Good Manufacturing Practices, accurate labels and claims and allergen controls. In some cases, such as the transporting of live animals to be used in human and animal food, a completely new set of rules apply.
In addition to FDA regulated products, EAS Consulting Group, LLC. assists clients in the full spectrum of rules and regulations governed by USDA, including matters from Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP) and Sanitation Standard Operating Procedure (SSOP) plans and importing products into the U.S.
