    1. Rationale

    This terminology standard consolidates and uniformly defines common terms that are used in multiple standards under the jurisdiction of the F10 Committee. This revision adds two terms, beef and longissimus and updates two terms, livestock and meat. The revisions and updates are the result of a review by Subcommittee F10.50 that took into account definitions used by USDA-FSIS. Livestock FSIS: cattle, sheep, swine, goat, horse, mule, or other equine. Old ASTM: cattle, sheep, swine, and other domesticated meat animals. New ASTM: cattle, sheep, swine, goat, horse, mule or other equine. Meat FSIS: the flesh of animals used as food including the dressed flesh of cattle, swine, sheep, or goats and other edible animals, except fish, poultry, and wild game animals. Old ASTM: edible product(s) harvested by the livestock or poultry packing industries. New ASTM: the flesh (muscle and fatty tissue) of animals used as food including the dressed flesh of cattle, swine, sheep, goats and poultry.
