Agricultural Marketing Service June 21, 2010 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Walnuts Grown in California; Changes to the Quality Regulations for Shelled Walnuts
Document Number: 2010-14845
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2010-06-21
Agency: Agricultural Marketing Service, Department of Agriculture
This rule invites comments on revisions to the quality regulations for shelled walnuts under the Federal marketing order for California walnuts (order). The order regulates the handling of walnuts grown in California and is administered locally by the California Walnut Board (Board). This rule would require inspection and certification of shelled walnut products after manufacturing instead of before manufacturing. It would also establish a process to specify that manufactured products smaller than eight sixty-fourths of an inch in diameter are derived from walnut pieces that have been inspected and certified to U.S. Commercial grade standards. These changes would result in more efficient and cost-effective handler operations, and would certify the final size and grade of all manufactured walnut pieces.
