Final notice; correction.


A notice was published in the Federal Register (73 FR 7245-7246) dated February 7, 2008, revising the United States Standards for Grades of Pineapples, issued under the Agricultural Marketing Act of 1946 (7 U.S.C. 1621-1627) effective March 10, 2008. However, in section 51.1489, Application of Tolerances, the words “packages” and “containers” were incorrectly listed. The correct words should have been “samples” and “sample.” This document corrects the standards by revising this section.
