Almonds Grown in California; Change in Requirements for Interhandler Transfers of Almonds
Document Number: 07-4490
Type: Rule
Date: 2007-09-12
Agency: Agricultural Marketing Service, Department of Agriculture
This rule revises the requirements for interhandler transfers of almonds under the administrative rules and regulations of the California almond marketing order (order). The order regulates the handling of almonds grown in California and is administered locally by the Almond Board of California (Board). This rule requires handlers who transfer almonds to other handlers to report to the Board whether or not the almonds were treated to achieve a 4-log reduction in Salmonella bacteria (Salmonella). This action will help the Board track treated and untreated almonds and facilitate administration of its mandatory Salmonella treatment program.
