Good evening, thank you for the response. The initial article I found is from 2010 and updated in 2017. See below for that link:


For the record search if it is possible to include the initial 12/2010 date and then any changes since the latest update in 10/2017 of the original publication? I am interested in learning more about how the USDA FSIS arrived at both the working definition of 'WYNGZ' as well as the specific branding requirements. I think 2010 to 2017 would work for this initial request.
