Start Preamble


Food and Drug Administration, HHS.


Final rule; correction.


The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is correcting a final rule that appeared in the Federal Register of December 23, 2004 (69 FR 76844). The document amended the food additive regulations by establishing a new maximum permitted energy level of x rays for treating food of 7.5 million electron volts provided the x rays are generated from machine sources that use tantalum or gold as the target material, with no change in the maximum permitted dose levels or uses currently permitted by FDA's food additive regulations. The document was published with two errors in the preamble section. This document corrects those errors.


Effective December 23, 2004.
