Pistachios Grown in California; Changes in Handling Requirements
Document Number: 07-5989
Type: Rule
Date: 2007-12-07
Agency: Agricultural Marketing Service, Department of Agriculture
This rule changes the handling requirements currently authorized under the California pistachio marketing order (order). The order regulates the handling of pistachios grown in California and is administered locally by the Administrative Committee for Pistachios (committee). This rule suspends the minimum quality requirements, including maximum defects and minimum sizes, for California pistachios. This will reduce handler costs and provide handlers more flexibility in meeting customer needs.
