ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: The Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) is announcing the dollar limitations on the amount of meat and meat food products and poultry and poultry products that a retail store can sell to hotels, restaurants, and similar institutions without disqualifying itself for exemption from Federal inspection requirements. SUMMARY: DATES: Applicable: July 24, 2019. Gina Kouba, Office of Policy and Program Development, Food Safety and Inspection Service, USDA, 1400 Independence Avenue SW, Room 6065, South Building, Washington, DC 20250; (202) 720–5627. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: jbell on DSK3GLQ082PROD with NOTICES FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Background The Federal Meat Inspection Act (21 U.S.C. 601 et seq.) and the Poultry Products Inspection Act (21 U.S.C. 451 et seq.) provide a comprehensive statutory framework to ensure that meat and meat food products and poultry and poultry products prepared for commerce are wholesome, not adulterated, and properly labeled and packaged. Statutory provisions requiring inspection of the processing of meat and meat food products and poultry and poultry products do not apply to operations of types traditionally and usually conducted at retail stores and restaurants in regard to products offered for sale to consumers in normal retail quantities (21 U.S.C. 661(c)(2) and 454(c)(2)). FSIS’s regulations (9 CFR 303.1(d) and 381.10(d)) elaborate on the VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:50 Jun 21, 2019 Jkt 247001 conditions under which requirements for inspection do not apply to retail operations involving the preparation of meat and meat food products and the processing of poultry and poultry products. Sales to Hotels, Restaurants, and Similar Institutions Under the aforementioned regulations, sales to hotels, restaurants, and similar institutions (other than household consumers) disqualify a retail store from exemption if the retail product sales exceed either of two maximum limits: 25 percent of the dollar value of the total retail product sales of the amenable product or the calendar year retail dollar limitation set by the FSIS Administrator. The retail dollar limitation is adjusted automatically during the first quarter of the year if the Consumer Price Index (CPI), published by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, shows an increase or decrease of more than $500 in the price of the same volume of product for the previous year. FSIS publishes a notice of the adjusted retail dollar limitations in the Federal Register. (See 9 CFR 303.1(d)(2)(iii)(b) and 381.10(d)(2)(iii)(b).) The CPI for 2018 reveals an annual average price increase for meat and meat food products at 0.41 percent and an annual average price increase for poultry and poultry products at 0.32 percent. When rounded to the nearest dollar, the retail dollar limitation for meat and meat food products increased by $310 and the retail dollar limitation for poultry and poultry products increased by $183. In accordance with 9 CFR 303.1(d)(2)(iii)(b) and 381.10(d)(2)(iii)(b), because the retail dollar limitations for meat and meat food products and poultry and poultry products did not increase or decrease by more than $500, FSIS is making no adjustment in the retail dollar limitations on sales to hotels, restaurants, and similar institutions. The retail dollar limitation for meat and meat food products remains unchanged at $75,700 and the retail dollar limitation for poultry and poultry products remains unchanged at $56,600 for calendar year 2019. FSIS is currently considering the retail dollar limitations for Siluriformes fish and fish products. FSIS intends to include Siluriformes fish and fish products in its calculations for retail dollar limitations for meat products in future Federal Register notices that announce retail dollar limitations. PO 00000 Frm 00003 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 29495 Congressional Review Act Pursuant to the Congressional Review Act at 5 U.S.C. 801 et seq., the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs has determined that this notice is not a ‘‘major rule,’’ as defined by 5 U.S.C. 804(2). Additional Public Notification Public awareness of all segments of rulemaking and policy development is important. Consequently, FSIS will announce this Federal Register notice on-line through its web page located at: http://www.fsis.usda.gov/federalregister. FSIS will also announce and provide a link to this Federal Register notice through the FSIS Constituent Update, which is used to provide information regarding FSIS policies, procedures, regulations, Federal Register notices, FSIS public meetings, and other types of information that could affect or would be of interest to our constituents and stakeholders. The Constituent Update is available on the FSIS web page. Through the FSIS web page, the Agency can provide information to a much broader, more diverse audience. In addition, FSIS offers an email subscription service which provides automatic and customized access to selected food safety news and information. This service is available at: http://www.fsis.usda.gov/subscribe. Options range from recalls to export information, regulations, directives, and notices. Customers can add or delete subscriptions themselves and have the option to password protect their accounts.
