USDA Meat and Poultry Inspection Mark – FREE Vector Graphic Download

The Raw and Processed Meat and Poultry Inspection Marks, Icons and Labels That The USDA Forgot to Provide

USDA FSIS EST and Poultry Icons

The USDA doesn’t provide edible vector files for their Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) marks. Really, no lie. I had several clients who needed them so I made my own. Now you can enjoy them too. These are Illustrator editable files so you’ll need Adobe Illustrator to change the EST and P numbers.

Download the Free Editable Vector USDA (FSIS) EST Inspection Mark Icon for Processed Meat

On the EST icon/bug inspection mark on processed products, you just need to swap out the EST. (processing plant) number.

Download the Free Editable Vector USDA (FSIS) Inspection P Mark Icon for Raw Poultry

On the inspection mark on raw poultry just swap the P number (poultry) number for your product.

The fonts are Akzindenz-Grotesk BQ.

And if you need someone to design your product package, email me or call 831-566-3046 to get started.

    OMG, this is of huge help! Thank you so much. Why can’t the USDA get it together?

      I’m secretly hoping they steal this file and post in on their website. It’s funny when these big government agencies can’t even do something so simple as providing the official file for their official symbol.

    I cannot get this to import into my label machine on my computer. I don’t understand what I am doing wrong.

    • Clay Butler

      You may be doing nothing wrong. Perhaps the file is not compatible with the label machines software. Also, you don’t want to use this file as is. You need to update it with your own information by editing it in Illustrator. From there you can export to any file type you need.

    Thank you so much for saving me the headache of generating these on my own!

    Do you have this in .ai format?

    April 18, 2018
    • Clay Butler

      No. But it’s not necessary. It’s an Illustrator editable PDF file. No different than AI. I put a note in the file.

    So does it matter what number you pick?

    May 2, 2018
    • Clay Butler

      You don’t pick a number. It’s literally the plant number.

      May 16, 2018
      • CGeorge

        How do I get a plant number?

  • Tina

    Do you know the minimum size requirement for the USDA Meat mark?

      Sorry, I don’t.
