The links below list our stock safe handling instruction labels and other food safety labels. These labels are pre-printed on a roll with an adhesive back, just peel the label off the roll and place it on your package. Safe handling instruction (SHI) labels are designed to go on retail meat packages where required by law. Be sure to check with your local food/health inspectors to make sure these labels are acceptable for use in your meat department. We also have many labels for scales with the SHI panel pre-printed on them. Check the Scale Labels menu for the brand of scale you have. Some models of electronic scales can actually print the SHI panel on a blank label along with the other information. Check with your scale manufacture for details.
Find the label you need on the list below and go to the detail page. You may then enter the quantity you wish to purchase in the entry box to the left of the "Add To Cart" button. The price in your shopping cart will automatically be adjusted to the correct quantity price level. The approximate freight charge will be figured on the cart using UPS services.
