SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Need for Correction

The regulatory text in §§ 210.10(o)(2)(iii)(B) and 226.20(b)(4) indicates that servings of cottage cheese, cheese food, and cheese spread in the lunch pattern for infants are measured in ounces. In an interim rule published in the Federal Register on November 15, 1999 (64 FR 61770), the infant meal pattern tables that appear in §§ 210.10(o)(2) and 226.20(b)(4) incorrectly refer to tablespoons instead of ounces. This document corrects the tables to indicate that a serving of cottage cheese, cheese food, or cheese spread is to be measured in ounces.

In a final rule published in the Federal Register on March 9, 2000 (65 FR 12429), the meal pattern table in § 226.20(c)(3) contained incorrect information for the fluid milk requirement for adult participants receiving suppers under the Child and Adult Care Food Program. The meal pattern table in § 226.20(c)(4) contained incorrect amounts of meat and meat alternates that may be offered as part of a reimbursable snack. This document corrects these errors.
