While ice cream labels, popsicle labels, and frozen yogurt and smoothie labels are in great demand as summer fast approaches, meat labels (in the form of both refrigerator labels and freezer stickers) maybe the most important at this time of year. For the carnivores and omnivores among us, meat is a must, and freezing is the best way to preserve it. Not everyone likes summer sausages and beef jerky, but hey, we’ve got dry sausage labels and meat labels for those forms of protein, too, should they float your boat.
Like any other refrigerator label or freezer sticker, meats labels must meet (or is it “meat”?) certain requirements. All of ours can beat the cold down to sixty below zero, and sneer at moisture. That’s standard for a decent freezer label. But except for the meat labels we make for home use, what’s on the label often matters as much as what the label is made from. Take seafood labels, for instance. Some, especially those for shellfish, are required by law to inform you that sometimes the meat can make you ill or trigger an allergy attack. Some seafood labels also proudly inform you that they acquired the seafood inside the package from sustainable fisheries. This is a selling point, because most consumers are happy to learn that their favorite seafood companies are good stewards of the ocean.
Some prepared meat products are composites of a varieties of meats and other ingredients, as the refrigerator label of a frankfurter package or sliced bologna will inform you. By federal law, they also have a nutritional table. But to some people, the most important issue is whether a product meets their dietary requirements, and we’re not just talking Adkins here. For example, neither observant Jews nor observant Muslims will eat pork, so whether or not a hot dog or baloney slice contains pork is important to know. Also, they need to know if the animals the products derived from were slaughtered in a Kosher or Halal manner. The relevant symbol(s) is an important port of many meat labels.
