SERVICE AND REGULATORY ANNOUNCEMENTS


NOTICES REGARDING MEAT INSPECTION

CLASSIFICATION OF GARLIC SAUSAGE

Inquiry has been received with regard to the classification of a product
commonly known as garlic style or "knoblauch sausage, stuffed in beef or
hog casings, and containing a liberal quantity of garlic; at some establishments
the product is linked while at others it is not linked but resembles, in outward
appearance, the straight variety of Bologna-style sausage.
On investigation it has been determined that such product is usually cooked
at the establishment in the process of manufacture, but that the consumer may
consume it without further cooking or may merely warm it preparatory to
serving. The product is therefore construed to be an article of the kind pre-
pared customarily to be eaten without cooking and when containing muscle
tissue of pork it should be treated as provided for in regulation 18, section 7,
paragraph 4, B. A. I. Order 211 (revised).
IRREGULAR DELIVERIES OF IMPORTED MEATS

In order that United States collectors of customs at ports of first arrival may
take direct action looking to the enforcement of the penalty of the redelivery
bond given by importers, in case of irregular deliveries of imported meat or
meat food products, all facts concerning irregular shipments shall be forwarded
by inspectors to the collector immediately on receipt of knowledge of them.

PORK LOINS IN CASINGS

Inasmuch as pork loins which are boned, cured, and stuffed in casings, re-
semble capicola or coppa, such articles are placed in the category of pork
products prepared customarily to be eaten without cooking, within the scope
of regulation 18, section 7. paragraph 4, B. A. I. Order 211 (revised). Accord-
ingly, such articles shall be subjected to a temperature or other treatment
prescribed by the chief of bureau, sufficient to destroy all live trichine.

At the request of the Fidelity Laboratories (Inc.), 820 Exchange Avenue,
Chicago, Ill., permission is granted for the distribution of Keystone Brand
Saponified Cresol Solution," manufactured by James Good (Inc.), Philadelphia,

Ill., under the name "Fidelity Stock Disinfectant," permission for the distribu-
tion of which was granted on March 22, 1927, and is hereby withdrawn.
"Fidelity Stock Disinfectant" is identical with "Keystone Brand Saponified
Cresol Solution," manufactured by James Good (Inc.), Philadelphia, Pa.


STOCKYARDS FOR NONINFECTIOUS CATTLE

The following-named places have been designated as public stockyards as
defined in paragraph 9. section 1, regulation 1, of B. A. I., Order 292, governing
the interstate movement of livestock:
Stockmens Union Yards, Spokane, Wash., effective June 24, 1927.
Union Stock Yards & Market Co., New York, N. Y., effective July 1, 1927.


COOPERATION WITH FEDERAL COORDINATING AGENCIES

The attention of all members of the department is directed to the fact that
the policy of the Government contemplates full and complete cooperation on
the part of all its officers and employees with the various Federal coordinating
agencies. In a recent communication the chief coordinator pointed out that
" while this understanding exists to a satisfactory degree among the officials
stationed in Washington, there remains a lack of such comprehension -on the
part of many field officials. Area coordinators use all available channels of
communication in efforts to educate field officials in their districts, but it
appears that the information thus disseminated has not had the desired
effect." While so far as known to this office there is no instance of record
in which any member of the Department of Agriculture has failed to cooper-
ate fully with the coordinating agencies, it seems desirable at this time, in
order that this satisfactory situation may be continued, to emphasize the
following points for the information and guidance of all concerned:
1. That the service of coordination is an Executive agency, established by
the President for the purpose of enabling him to coordinate the activities of
the various departments, bureaus, and establishments of the Executive branch,
and to develop and put into operation unified plans of business administration.
2. That all officers and employees of the executive government are directed
to furnish any available information desired for purposes of coordination, or
to attend any conference on coordination, at the request of the chief coordinator
-or his duly authorized agents, and to afford access to these duly authorized
agents of the chief coordinator or of the coordinating boards to books and
papers of the various departments and independent establishments which con-
tain information pertinent to the subject under consideration for coordination.
3. That this service is carried on by personnel and services contributed by
the various executive activities, and it is the duty of Federal officials generally,
even in cases in which they are not regularly designated members of any of
the coordinating agencies, actively to assist the coordinating service in the
execution of the President's plans and policies whenever opportunity offers.
4. That the duty of participation in interdepartmental coordination is par-
ticularly applicable to field employees in connection with the activities of that
branch of the field service of coordination known as the Federal Business
Association.







SERVICE AND REGULATORY ANNOUNCEMENTS


5. That the area coordinators and Federal business associations are field
agents of the chief coordinator, the area coordinators having direct supervision
of the activities of the business associations, and these associations being duly
authorized coordinating agencies and entrusted with local questions involving
coordination along varied lines.
6. That cooperative measures of interdepartmental concern applied intrade-
partmentally to the various bureaus and other divisions of departments partake
of the qualities of interdepartmental effort and result in closer working agree-
ments and more harmonious relations within the departments themselves.
Chiefs of bureaus are requested to bring this information to the attention of
all employees, both in Washington and the field.


TRANSFER OF PACKERS AND STOCKYARDS ADMINISTRATION TO
THE BUREAU

Effective July 1, 1927, the Packers and Stockyards Administration is abol-
ished and until further order the administration and enforcement of the packers
and stockyards act, 1921, will be under the supervision and direction of the
chief of the Bureau of Animal Industry, Department of Agriculture. All em-
ployees on the rolls of the Packers and Stockyards Administration on June 30,
1927, are hereby transferred to and appointed in the Bureau of Animal Indus-
try at their respective grades and salaries in said administration on said date,
except as otherwise ordered in specific cases, and their titles and designations
are modified accordingly.
The general rules and regulations for carrying out the provisions of the
packers and stockyards act, 1921, with respect to stockyard owners, market
agencies, and dealers, made and prescribed by the Secretary of Agriculture on
November 30, 1921, as amended, are hereby further amended by substituting for
the words "Packers and Stockyards Administration" wherever they occur iu
said rules and regulations, the words Bureau of Animal Industry."


PARASITIC NODULES RESEMBLING TUBERCULOSIS IN THE LUNGS
OF SWINE

A recent paper by Day, Bengston, and Raffensperger in the Journal of the
American Veterinary Medical Association, calls attention to the fact that for
more than half a century parasitic nodules, due to lungworms in the lungs
of swine, have been known to simulate tuberculosis. The authors have found
a simple method of differentiating the two conditions, as follows: When por-
tions of swine lungs containing parasitic nodules are compressed between two
slides or trichina compressors and examined under a magnification of from
40 to 60 diameters, the preparation shows peculiar, characteristic, grapelike
clusters of lymphocytes, a picture distinctly different from that presented by
true tuberculous nodules. This procedure gives a rapid method of making
a differential diagnosis of two conditions which can not be differentiated by a
naked-eye examination. Other differential points are: Parasitic nodules are
from 1 to 5 millimeters in diameter, easily removed with forceps, grayish
white and somewhat translucent, firm but easily crushed, usually not over 100
visible on lung surface, and not usually present in swine more than 1 year
old; tuberculous nodules are from 1 to 10 millimeters in diameter, not easily
removed with forceps, dull, grayish white, with tiny yellowish points often
seen in larger nodules, fibrous and hard to crush, usually many more than 100
on lung surface, and found in swine of all ages.
