Food Safety and Inspection Service

9 CFR Part 320

[Docket No. FSIS-2009-0015]
RIN 0583-AA69

Recordkeeping Regulations; Correcting Amendment

AGENCY: Food Safety and Inspection Service, USDA.

ACTION: Correcting amendment.


SUMMARY: The Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) is amending the 
Federal meat inspection regulations to correct an inadvertent error in 
the recordkeeping provisions.

DATES: This amendment is effective July 6, 2009.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Rachel Edelstein, Director, Policy 
Issuances Division, Office of Policy and Program Development, FSIS, 
U.S. Department of Agriculture, 1400 Independence Avenue, SW., 
Washington, DC 20250-3700, (202) 720-0399.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On November 30, 1990, FSIS published a final 
rule on net weight labeling of meat and poultry products (55 FR 49826). 
The rule redesignated Sec.  317.20 as Sec.  317.24 (55 FR 49833). 
However, in Sec.  320.1(b)(5), the rule did not change the reference to 
Sec.  317.24. This notice corrects the error and amends Sec.  
320.1(b)(5) to refer to Sec.  317.24.

Additional Public Notification

    Public awareness of all segments of rulemaking and policy 
development is important. Consequently, in an effort to ensure that
