Bone-in poultry products that are injected or marinated with a solution
containing butter or other edible fat, broth, stock or water plus spices,
flavor enhancers and other approved substances must be labeled as
basted or self basted. The maximum added weight of approximately 3%
solution before processing is included in the net weight on the label. Label
must include a statement identifying the total quantity and common or
usual name of all ingredients in the solution, e.g., “Injected with
approximately 3% of a solution of ____________ (list of ingredients)."
Use of the terms “basted” or “self-basted” on boneless poultry products is
limited to 8% of the weight of the raw poultry before processing.
