SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The Food and Nutrition Service published a final rule in the Federal Register, entitled “Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children (WIC): Vendor Cost Containment,” 74 FR 51745, on October 8, 2009. Pages 51754 and 51758 stated that two sentences would be added at the end of § 246.12 (g)(4)(i)(D). These two sentences were inadvertently omitted from the regulatory text of paragraph (g)(4)(i)(D) set forth in the final rule published on October 8, 2009. This final rule correction adds the two omitted sentences to § 246.12 (g)(4)(i)(D).
