[Docket No. 98-062E]

 
Performance Standards for On-line Antimicrobial Reprocessing of 
Pre-chill Poultry Carcasses

AGENCY: Food Safety and Inspection Service, USDA.

ACTION: Extension of comment period.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) is extending the 
comment period for the proposed rulemaking, Performance Standards for 
On-line Antimicrobial Reprocessing of Pre-chill Poultry Carcasses, 
which was scheduled to close on January 30, 2001. At the request of the 
National Chicken Council and the National Turkey Federation, FSIS is 
granting a 60-day extension to permit the associations to collect 
additional data. Because the comment period included the holiday 
season, the requestors asked for additional time to accommodate loss of 
time and personnel during the holidays. The proposed rule was published 
on December 1, 2000 (65 FR 75187) and requested comments on the 
proposed performance standards for poultry products reprocessed on-line 
and other information and data.

DATES: Comments must be received on or before April 2, 2001.

ADDRESSES: Send one original and two copies of written comments to FSIS 
Docket No. 98-062P, Department of Agriculture, Food Safety and 
Inspection Service, Room 102, 300 12th Street, SW., Washington, DC 
20250-3700.
