The final regulations that are the subject of this correction revised § 927.105 and added a new § 927.316.

Need for Correction

As published, the regulatory text in paragraph (a) of § 927.316 indicates, in part, that Beurre D'Anjou pears shall have a certification by the Federal-State Inspection Service, issued prior to shipment, showing that such pears have an average pressure test of 14 pounds. The words “or less” were inadvertently omitted following the words “14 pounds.” The words “14 pounds or less” are needed to recognize that pears naturally ripen and soften, over time, and could have an average pressure test less than 14 pounds, which would be acceptable in the marketplace.
