On May 8, 2008, the Commission instituted this investigation based on the complaint, as supplemented, of Jaccard Corporation of Orchard Park, New York, alleging violations of section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930 in the importation into the United States, the sale for importation, and the sale within the United States after importation of certain hand-held meat tenderizers by reason of infringement of U.S. Trademark Registration No. 1,172,879 (the JACCARD® word mark) and also by reason of infringement of trade dress. 73 FR 27846 (May 14, 2008). The notice of investigation, tracking the complaint, named Keystone Manufacturing, Inc. of Buffalo, New York and Chefmaster/Mr. Bar-B-Q Inc. of Old Bethpage, New York as respondents.

On May 22, 2008, the ALJ sua sponte issued the subject ID (Order No. 4) amending the notice of investigation so that “Chefmaster/Mr. Bar-B-Q Inc.” instead reads “Mr. Bar-B-Q-, Inc.”, which he found is this respondent's correct name. No petitions for review of this ID were filed. The Commission has determined not to review this ID.

The authority for the Commission's determination is contained in section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (19 U.S.C. 1337), and section 210.42 of the Commission's Rules of Practice and Procedure (19 CFR 210.42).
