"Made in store" Claims

"Made in store" claims are acceptable when the last substantial transformation occurred in the store where the product is sold.

Water-chilled Net Quantity Claims for Fresh and Frozen Poultry

For fresh or frozen poultry that has been water chilled, food retailers may display one of the following signs, as appropriate, in close proximity to such product when offered for sale in retail food stores:

"All water-chilled poultry and poultry pieces contain water absorbed during processing. The price of the product reflects the water content, and government regulations set limits for the amount of water absorbed."

"Toute volaille et morceaux de volaille refroidis à l'eau contiennent de l'eau absorbée durant la transformation. Le prix du produit en tient compte, et les règlements gouvernementaux établissent les limites d'absorption d'eau permises."

When poultry has been chilled by a combination of water and air, which results in considerably less water pick up, permitted wording would be:

"All water chilled poultry contains water absorbed during processing. Government regulations set limits for the amount of water absorbed."

"Toute volaille refroidie à l'eau en absorbe durant la transformation. Les règlements gouvernementaux établissent les limites d'absorption permises."
