Determining Net Weight Compliance for Meat and Poultry Products
Document Number: E6-5866
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2006-04-19
Agency: Department of Agriculture, Food Safety and Inspection Service
This document corrects the preamble and regulatory text to a proposed rule published in the Federal Register of March 28, 2006, concerning net weight compliance for meat and poultry products. These corrections reference the revised version of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Handbook 133, dated January 2005. The March 28, 2006, proposed rule incorrectly referenced the NIST Handbook 133, dated January 2002. The standards in the January 2005 NIST Handbook 133 that are being proposed to be incorporated by reference in FSIS' meat and poultry inspection regulations remain substantively unchanged from those currently incorporated by reference in FSIS' regulations and are no different than the standards in the January 2002 version.
