I’m designing the packaging for a new line of premium natural bacon for Tender Belly. This bacon is the real deal – all natural, hormone free, cherry wood smokey and sweetened with maple syrup. However when it comes time to place the USDA safe handling instructions that are required for all meat products, I’m stuck with a low resolution gif file that they oddly call a “reproducible master”, or a jpg file that they call “larger”. The gif file is unusable and the jpg is just not good enough for printing if you are at all serious about package design.
So I decided to make my own based upon the USDA official Safe Handling Instructions and Guidlines.
It came out really nice, and since no one else has bothered, I figured I’d make it available for everyone to use.

FREE Bonus USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) Included in Safe Handling Document
The USDA doesn’t provide edible vector files for Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) icons either.
On the EST icon/bug Inspection mark on processed products, you just need to swap out the EST. (processing plant number).
On the inspection mark on raw poultry just swap the P number (poultry) number for your product.
