7.21.1 Mandatory requirements

The guidelines for labelling imported meat products are essentially the same as those for the labels of Canadian meat products and reference should be made to section 7.6, however there are two important differences:

  1. "product of (country of origin)" is to appear in close proximity to the product description; it shall be at least half the height of the largest letter on the main panel; and
  2. the inspection stamp or the statement of inspection of the exporting country replaces the Meat Inspection Legend.
