As published, the direct final rule contains errors which may prove to be confusing and needs to be clarified. In Section 868.310(f) U.S. Sample grade, the word “re” should read “or”; in § 868.311, the correct wording for that section should read “Grades and grade requirements for the class Second Head Milled Rice. (See also § 868.315)”, instead of “Grades and grade requirements for the class Second Head Milled Rice. (See also § 868.305.)”; and in § 868.312, the correct wording for that section should read “Grades and grade requirements for the class Screenings Milled Rice.
