Eligibility Requirements for USDA Graded Shell Eggs
The Agricultural Marketing Service published in the Federal Register on April 19, 2006, a document regarding Voluntary Shell Egg Grading regulations. The final rule provides that shell eggs must not have been previously shipped for retail sale in order to be officially identified with a USDA consumer grademark and changes the definition of the term eggs of current production from 30 days to 21 days, thereby making eggs that were laid more than 21 days before the date packing ineligible to be officially identified with a USDA-consumer grademark. In that document, a number appearing in one of the columns in Table 1 was typed incorrectly. This document corrects that error.
