FSIS tracks consumer complaints about meat, poultry, and egg products. Consumer complaints are usually filed because the food made the consumer sick, caused an allergic reaction, was not properly labeled (misbranded), or contained a foreign object. FSIS has developed a web portal to allow consumers to electronically file a complaint with the Agency about a meat, poultry, or egg product. FSIS will use this information to look for trends that will enhance the Agency’s food safety efforts. FSIS uses a Food Safety Mobile, a vehicle that travels throughout the continental United States, to educate consumers about the risks associated with the mishandling of food and the steps they can take to reduce their risk of foodborne illness. Organizations can request a visit from the FSIS Food Safety Mobile although the availability of the Mobile is limited. To facilitate the scheduling of the Food Safety Mobile’s visits when it is available, the Agency has put an electronic questionnaire on its web site. The questionnaire solicits information about the person/organization requesting the visit, the timing of the visit, and the type of event at which the Food Safety Mobile is to appear. FSIS has made the following estimates based upon an information collection assessment.

Nationally, the number of OHV users has climbed sevenfold in the past 30 years, from approximately 5 million in 1972 to 36 million in 2000. The ten states with the largest population also have the most OHV users. California has 4.35 million OHV users accounting for almost 11 percent of the U.S. total (Off-Highway Vehicle Recreation in the United States, Regions and States: A National Report from the National Survey on Recreation and the Environment (NSRE) Cordell, Betz, Green and Owens June 2005). There were 786,914 all terrain vehicles (ATVs) and OHV motorcycles registered in 2004, up 330 percent since 1980. Annual sales of ATVs and OHV motorcycles in California were the highest in the U.S. for the last 5 years. Four-wheel drive vehicle sales in California also increased by 1500 percent to 3,046,866 from 1989 to 2002. Unmanaged OHV use has resulted in unplanned roads and trails, erosion, E:\FR\FM\07OCN1.SGM 07OCN1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:
    Title: Consumer Complaint Monitoring System; the Food Safety Mobile

    Type of Request: Extension of an approved information collection.
    Abstract: FSIS has been delegated the authority to exercise the 
functions of the Secretary as specified in the Federal Meat Inspection 
Act (FMIA) (21 U.S.C. 601, et seq.), the Poultry Products Inspection 
Act (PPIA) (21 U.S.C. 451, et seq.), and the Egg Products Inspection 
Act (EPIA) (21 U.S.C. 1031, et seq.). These statutes mandate that FSIS 
protect the public by verifying that meat, poultry, and egg products 
are safe, wholesome, unadulterated, and properly labeled and packaged.
    FSIS is requesting an extension of an approved information 
collection addressing paperwork and recordkeeping requirements 
regarding the Agency's Consumer Complaint Monitoring System web portal 
and regarding its electronic Food Safety Mobile questionnaire.
    FSIS tracks consumer complaints about meat, poultry, and egg 
products. Consumer complaints are usually filed because the food made 
the consumer sick, caused an allergic reaction, was not properly 
labeled (misbranded), or contained a foreign object. FSIS has developed 
a web portal to allow consumers to electronically file a complaint with 
the Agency about a meat, poultry, or egg product. FSIS will use this 
information to look for trends that will enhance the Agency's food 
safety efforts.
    FSIS uses a Food Safety Mobile, a vehicle that travels throughout 
the continental United States, to educate consumers about the risks 
associated with the mishandling of food and the steps they can take to 
reduce their risk of foodborne illness.
    Organizations can request a visit from the FSIS Food Safety Mobile 
although the availability of the Mobile is limited. To facilitate the 
scheduling of the Food Safety Mobile's visits when it is available, the 
Agency has put an electronic questionnaire on its web site. The 
questionnaire solicits information about the person/organization 
requesting the visit, the timing of the visit, and the type of event at 
which the Food Safety Mobile is to appear.
    FSIS has made the following estimates based upon an information 
collection assessment.
    Estimate of Burden: The public reporting burden for this collection 
of information is estimated to average .214 hours per response.

    Estimated Total Annual Burden on Respondents: 139 hours.

from John O'Connell, Paperwork Reduction Act Coordinator, Food Safety 
and Inspection Service, USDA, 1400 Independence Ave., SW., Room 3532 
South Building, Washington, DC 20250-3700; (202) 720-0345.
    Comments are invited on: (a) Whether the proposed collection of 
information is necessary for the proper performance of FSIS' functions, 
including whether the information will have practical utility; (b) the 
accuracy of FSIS' estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of

[[Page 58531]]

the methodology and assumptions used; (c) ways to enhance the quality, 
utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) ways
