The IPC received a petition from the Idaho Grower Shippers Association (IGSA) requesting that the IPC amend its administrative rules to remove the variety labeling requirements for all non-russet varieties of potatoes grown in Idaho. Russet varieties would remain subject to the labeling requirements.

The purpose of the negotiated rulemaking process is to determine whether it is beneficial to the Idaho potato industry, Idaho potato customers, and consumers of Idaho potatoes for the IPC to remove the labeling requirement for non-russet varieties of potatoes.

The variety rule can be found at IDAPA located here: IDAPA 29 - Idaho Potato Comments are due no later than June 2, 2023.
