The label of a prepackaged dairy product for the consumer must include a batch, code or lot number to identify a specific lot of production for that product. This may be on any surface of the container [19.(3)(b), 68.(3)(b), DPR].

Please note that recommendations have been made regarding the use of potentially misleading lot codes. For additional information, please refer to the Lot Code section under Manner of Declaring on the Date Markings and Storage Instructions page.
