                                            (croissant). Surimi (imitation crab) can be a hidden source of common
                                            allergens, which include milk, peanuts, tree nuts, eggs, fish, shellfish, soy,
                                            wheat, and sesame.
                                          • Sesame can appear as an ingredient in food where it might not be expected
                                            (croissants) and may be included in the ingredients statements as “spice” or
                                            “flavoring.”
                                          • To credit surimi as a meat/meat alternate:
                                            • A 4.4-ounce portion of surimi seafood credits as 1.5 ounce equivalent meat/meat alternate;
                                            • A 3.0-ounce portion of surimi seafood credits as 1.0 ounce equivalent
                                              meat/meat alternate; and
                                            • A 1.0-ounce portion of surimi seafood credits as 0.25 ounce equivalent
                                              meat/meat alternate.
                                          • To credit surimi seafood differently than what is listed above, program operators should obtain a Child Nutrition (CN) label or Product Formulation Statement (PFS) from the manufacturer. These products may credit based on the creditable ingredient quantities identified in the CN label or PFS. For more information on crediting surimi, refer to CACFP policy memorandum SP 24 CACFP 11 SFSP 10-2019 Revised “Crediting Surimi Seafood in the Child Nutrition Programs” at fns.usda.gov/cacfp/policy.
