Version of section 291 from 2019-01-15 to 2022-06-20:

Marginal note:Uncooked meat products

 The principal display panel of a prepackaged edible meat product that is not a ready-to-eat product but could be mistaken for one must bear

  • (a) the expression “Must Be Cooked” or “doit être cuit” or “Raw Product” or “produit cru” or the word “Uncooked” or “non cuit”, or any equivalent word or expression, in close proximity to the common name, to indicate that the meat product requires cooking before consumption; and

  • (b) comprehensive cooking instructions — such as a combination of internal temperature and cooking time — that, if followed, will result in a ready-to-eat meat product.
