The Agricultural Marketing Service published a final rule in the Federal Register on September 28, 2004 (69 FR 57822). The document changed reporting requirements regarding Other Seedless varietal type raisins under the California raisin marketing order. However, three paragraphs in one subpart of the marketing order's rules and regulations were inadvertently omitted from subsequent issues of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR). This document identifies the three paragraphs in the subpart that need to be reinserted into Title 7 of the CFR, Part 989.
Effective Date: Effective on June 20, 2007.Start Further Info
