SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

This rule allows handlers to pack more individual pieces of fruit per 8-pound sample for seven size designations, eliminates one size designation, and adds two new size designations. These changes were unanimously recommended by the Committee and are expected to increase grower returns and enable handlers to compete more effectively in the marketplace. The rule was issued under Marketing Order No. 920, as amended (7 CFR part 920). The order is effective under the Agricultural Marketing Agreement Act of 1937, as amended (7 U.S.C. 601-674).

Need for Correction

The interim final rule as published contains an error in the amendatory instructions affecting 7 CFR part 920. The amendatory instructions incorrectly indicate that the revised table in § 920.302 appears at the end of paragraph (a)(4)(iv). The revised table actually appears at the end of paragraph (a)(4)(iii) of that section.
