reason of imports of refillable stainless steel kegs from China and 
Germany, provided for in subheadings 7310.10 and 7310.29 of the 
Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States, that have been found 
by the U.S. Department of Commerce (``Commerce'') to be sold in the 
United States at less than fair value (``LTFV''),\2\ and to be 
subsidized by the government of China.3 4 5
