The Livestock Feeding Claims Audit Program sets the requirements U.S. companies must meet so that the Quality Assessment Division can verify their livestock feeding claims. The claims may be those of the individual company, or as prescribed by another party. As an alternative, the claims may be verified through a USDA Process Verified Program.
Meat and meat products derived from cattle that meet the European Union High Quality Beef feeding claim are eligible for certification by FSIS for export to the European Union as High Quality Beef.
