HEARINGS ON STANDARDS OF FILL OF CONTAINERS FOR CANNED OYSTERS ANNOUNCED
The Administrator of the Federal Security Agency announced on July 20, a public hearing commencing at 10 o'clock in the morning of August 22, 1944, in Room 3106, South Building, U. S. Dept. of Agriculture, Washington, D. C., for the purpose of receiving evidence upon the basis of which regulations may be promulgated fixing and establishing reasonable standards of fill of container for canned oysters.
A suggested regulation to be considered at the hearing is set forth below, which suggested regulation is subject to adoption, rejection, amendment, or modification, in whole or in part, as the evidence of record adduced at the hearing may require.
836.6 Canned oysters: Fill of containers; label statement of substandard fill.
(a) The standard of fill of containers for canned oysters is a fill such that the drained weight of oysters taken from each container (except that cylindrical container which is 2-11/16th inches in diame ter and 4 inches in height) is not less than 68 percent of the water capacity of the container. The standard of f111 of container for canned oysters in that cylindrical container which is 2-11/16 tih inches in diameter and 4 inches in height is a fill such that the drained weight of oysters taken from each container is not less than 7.5 avoirdupois ounces. Water capacity of containers is determined by the general method prescribed in 21 CFR, Cum. Supp., 10.1 (a). The drained weight of oysters is determined by the following me thod: Keep the unopened canned oyster container at a temperature of not less than 680 or more than 950 F. for at least 12 hours immediately preceding the determination, Af ter opening, tilt the container so as to distribute its contents evenly over the meshes of a circular sieve which has been previously weighed. The diameter of the sieve is 8 inches if the quantity of the contents of the container is less than 3 pounds, and 12 inches if such quantity is 3 pounds or more. The bottom of the sieve is woven-wire cloth which complies with the specifications for such cloth set forth under 12380 Micron (No. 8)" in Table I of "Standard Specifications for Sioves," published March 1, 1940, in L. C. 584 of the U. S. Dept. of Commerce, National Bureau of Standards. Without shifting the material on the sieve, so incline the sieve as to facilitate drainage. Two minutes from tbe time drainage begins, weigh the sieve and the drained oysters. The weight so found, less the weight of the sieve, shall be considered to be the drained weight of the oysters.
(b) It canned oysters fall below the applicable standard of fill of container prescribed in paragraph (a) of this section, the label shall bear the general statement of sub-standard fiii specified in 21 CFR, Cim. Supp.;: 10.2 (b) in the manner and form therein specified.
COURT UPHOLDS WFO-44 REQUIRING DELIVERY OF CANNED FISH TO GOVERNMENT
Pleading guilty to a charge of a violation of War Food Order y, the Riviera Packing Company of Eastport, Maine, was fined $10,000 in Federal Court at Bangor, Maine, June 13, and was also enjoined, on June 30, from making any further civilian deliveries until all shortages in its Government delivery quota are made up.
The packing company was charged with delivery of approximately 348,000 pounds of sardines to civilian trade without having delivered any for the use of the Army, Navy, Lend-Lease, and for other Governmental purposes,
The complaint pointed out that, if such violations be allowed to continue, they will result in wastage and diversion of fish and shellfish and will prevent the Government from properly controlling the food supply and from insuring adequate and efficient distribution of critical food to meet war and essential civilian needs. WFA is continuing its efforts to obtain strict compliance with this order.
