Consultation open on MAP beef lamb and pork

The Food Standards Agency (FSA) has launched a formal six-week consultation with key stakeholders to inform a review of the guidance on the safety and shelf-life of vacuum and modified atmosphere packed (VP/MAP) chilled beef, lamb and pork.

Currently, the FSA guidance advises that the maximum shelf-life of VP/MAP chilled beef, lamb and pork should be 10 days , unless suitable controls are in place to appropriately reduce associated risks. 

This summer the FSA, industry and other partners signed up to a joint statement, committing to working together to review the existing guidance and consider possible changes.
