Background

On May 2, 2011, FSIS published in the Federal Register, the final rule, “Cooperative Inspection Programs; Interstate Shipment of Meat and Poultry Products” (76 FR 24714). The final rule amended the Federal meat and poultry products inspection regulations to establish a new cooperative inspection program under which State-inspected establishments with 25 or fewer employees on average will be permitted ship meat and poultry products in interstate commerce. Two of the instructions for amending the regulations created typographical errors in the resulting regulatory language. The amendments in this document correct those errors.
