On November 30, 1990, FSIS published a final rule on net weight labeling of meat and poultry products (55 FR 49826). The rule redesignated § 317.20 as § 317.24 (55 FR 49833). However, in § 320.1(b)(5), the rule did not change the reference to § 317.24. This notice corrects the error and amends § 320.1(b)(5) to refer to § 317.24.
