SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    On May 2, 2011, FSIS published in the Federal Register, the final 
rule, ``Cooperative Inspection Programs; Interstate Shipment of Meat 
and Poultry Products'' (76 FR 24714). The final rule amended the 
Federal meat and poultry products inspection regulations to establish a 
new cooperative inspection program under which State-inspected 
establishments with 25 or fewer employees on average will be permitted 
ship meat and poultry products in interstate commerce. Two of the 
instructions for amending the regulations created typographical errors 
in the resulting regulatory language. The amendments in this document 
correct those errors.
