The interim final regulations that are the subject of this correction revised § 917.459, but inadvertently omitted paragraph (a)(6)(iii).
Need for Correction
The interim final rule as published omits revised § 917.459, paragraph (a)(6)(iii) which exempts Peento (Donut) varieties of peaches from the weight-count standards applicable to other round varieties of peaches. The additional language is needed to ensure that newly-developed and approved weight-count standards for volume-filled containers of Peento (Donut) varieties of peaches are the sole basis for the weight-count sampling of Peento varieties of peaches.
1. On page 16296, third column, add instruction “E” immediately following instruction “D” as stated below.
E. Paragraph (a)(6)(iii) is revised as follows.
2. On page 16298, first column, after the 5 asterisks following § 917.459 paragraph (a)(6) introductory text, paragraph (a)(6)(iii) is added to read as follows:
(iii) Such peaches in any container when packed other than as specified in paragraphs (a)(6)(i) and (ii) of this section are of a size that a 16-pound sample, representative of the peaches in the package or container, contains not more than 64 peaches, or if the peaches are “well matured,” not more than 73 peaches, except for Peento (Donut) varieties of peaches.Start Signature
