Abstract

These Regulations allow use of the generic name "meat" with the name of the animal species from which it comes (or equivalent terms such as "pork" or "beef") for skeletal muscles of mammalian and bird species in ingredients lists, subject to certain conditions (regs. 2, 3 and 5). The rules in regulation 19 of the principal Regulations on indications of quantities of certain ingredients or categories of ingredients apply in respect of that generic name. These Regulations also insert a transitional provision in respect of that generic name in implementation of Directive 2002/86/EC for food sold before 1 July 2003 (reg. 4).
