Agricultural Marketing Service, USDA.
The Agricultural Marketing Service (AMS) is making a correction to the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) by revising the administrative rules and regulations contained in part 922, Apricots Grown in Designated Counties in Washington. In an interim final rule published in the Federal Register on August 2, 2006 (71 FR 43641), and adopted as a final rule on November 13, 2006 (71 FR 66093), changes were made to section 922.321(a)(1) to relax the minimum grade requirements for Washington apricots for the 2006 season. The changes were in effect from August 3, 2006, through March 31, 2007. After the effective dates for the changes, the text of an entire paragraph was inadvertently omitted, by AMS, from subsequent issues of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) and the section was reserved. AMS did not intend for the entire paragraph to be removed. This document corrects that error by adding or reinserting the language that was omitted into Title 7 of the CFR, part 922.
