According to the USDA, Basted Product refers to Bone-In meat, that is injected with a marinating solution. The solution may contain Butter, other edible Fat, Broth, Stock or spiced and flavor enhanced water and other approved substances.

The label of a Basted Product must declare that it is a basted and also spell out in detail the ingredients in the basting solution. The net weight of the product on the label should include the weight of the basting solution, which should not exceed 3% of the weight of the product before basting. The upper weight limit of the basting solution would be 8% of the raw products weight.
