Meat, Poultry and Egg Products Inspection Directory

FSIS is responsible for protecting public health by ensuring the safety of meat, poultry, and egg products. FSIS has approximately 9,600 employees, with the majority of agency employees working on the front lines at more than 6,500 federally inspected facilities across the United States and territories, verifying the production of safe food, safe and properly labelled.

FSIS listed the physical location of each facility in the FSIS MPI Directory and published the facility’s demographics to provide a general description of the production operations for each facility. Establishments may perform a wide range of meat, poultry and egg product production activities, ranging from the slaughter of animals, to the cutting and grinding of raw meat, to the preparation of ready-to-eat products , etc. With an almost limitless list of different products on the market at any one time, FSIS groups these activities into broad categories, which include:

FSIS District: The FSIS district where a facility is located. For more information on FSIS districts: https://www.fsis.usda.gov/contactus/fsis-offices/office-field-operations-ofo.

HACCP size: The size of the establishment according to the business class.

  • Options are Large (= 500 or more employees), Small (10-499 employees), and Very Small (
  • This information is only collected for establishments under HACCP.
  • NOTE: This variable is not strongly correlated to production volume

Livestock slaughter: Conduct culling activities for all classes of Beef, Pork, Lamb, Sheep, Goats and Other Meat. “Other Meat” includes the remaining classes that are not already listed.

Poultry slaughter: Conduct culling activities for all classes of Chicken, Turkey, Duck, goose, Rabbit, Pheasant, Quail and Other poultry. “Other poultry” includes the remaining classes that are not already listed.

Alternatively, an establishment can produce products in only one category. For example, an establishment may prepare Fully Cooked Hot Dogs (PAM), Luncheon Meat (PAM), and Beef Jerky (PAM). Users may contact the individual establishment for product-specific inquiries.
