The Veterans' Administration and the Bureau of Prisons have specifications of
their own; other Government agencies purchase food articles under the Federal
specifications.
Food articles may be inspected for specifications either upon request of a
Government agency or the contractor, provided the Government agency or con-
tractor furnishes the inspector a copy of the contract, letter of award, or other
information clearly indicating the particular specification under which the articles
are purchased.
Meat and Meat Food Products
Inspection of meat for specifications shall consist in determining the kind,
quality, and condition of cuts of meat and the supervision of the handling of meat
food products throughout the various processes of preparation until packed and
marked for delivery. Supervision shall also cover the preparation of curing
agents, the kind and length of cure, and smoking at specified temperatures, as
well as cutting, chopping, spicing, wrapping, packing, labeling, and affixing the
special mark of the agency for which the product is intended.
Each step in the preparation of products such as sausage, hams, bacon, etc.,
shall be closely supervised to see that the product conforms to the specifications.
However, smoked hams and bacon of the quality required by specifications, which
have been fully cured and smoked, may be accepted without special supervision
of each step in the preparation of a particular purchase, provided inspectors have
actual knowledge that the hams and bacon have been cured and smoked as re-
quire'd by the specifications.
Fresh meat may be inspected at both official and unofficial establishments of
contractors. Meat food products and cured meats shall be inspected at official
establishments only.
Meat and meat food products for the Navy and Marine Corps may be inspected
for compliance with specifications and marked with the special brands of those
agencies upon request of official establishments even though the official establish-
ments are not in possession of contracts.
Meat and meat food products which have been inspected and found to conform
to specifications shall be marked with the special brand of the Government agency
for which the products are intended. The special brands of Government agencies
are of different shapes and each contains the name of the Government agency or
an abbreviation thereof, the name of the city where the inspection is conducted,
and a space for the date of inspection. Such brands are available for distribution
upon requisition.
Meat and meat food products marked with the special brand of the Navy or
Marine Corps which are stored in unofficial freezers prior to delivery to the Navy
or Marine Corps need not be reinspected at the time of shipment from the freezer,
unless there is reason to believe that the meat or meat food products have become
defrosted in the freezer due to improper refrigeration.







92 BUREAU OF ANIMAL INDUSTRY [November

In order that frozen meat and meat food products for the Navy may arrive at
destination in prime condition, inspectors are directed to see that the railroad
cars in which frozen meat and meat food products are shipped are in good condi-
tion, properly cleaned, and properly precooled by icing from 24 to 30 hours prior
to loading, and that the meat and meat food products are solidly frozen when
loaded. Inspectors shall also see that the bunkers of the cars are completely
filled with ice, and that salt is added in an amount not less than 15 percent of the
weight of the ice; also that the meat and meat food products are loaded so as to
maintain a uniform temperature throughout the car. Inspectors shall also super-
vise the affixing of the railroad or establishment seals to the cars, and ascertain
the exact time the cars are delivered to the transportation company.
Contractors' bills for meat and meat food products delivered to the Navy shall
be marked with a rubber stamp bearing the following statement: "The meat or
product described herein has been inspected and found to comply with the speci-
fications of the U. S. Navy," followed by the words "Inspector, Bureau of Animal
Industry." Stamps for this purpose are available upon requisition.
The inspection of meat-and meat food products at receiving points of Govern-
ment agencies where Bureau inspectors are stationed shall consist in an examina-
tion for condition and marking.
Foods Other Than Meat
Inspection for specifications includes food articles other than meat, such as
poultry, eggs, butter, cheese, fish, fruits, and vegetables.
Inspection of poultry shall consist of determining kind, sex, quality, weight,
dressing, and condition. Inspection of eggs shall include weight, cleanliness,
color, and kind of package in addition to a sample candling of the eggs candled by
contractors. The inspection of articles such as butter shall be confined to flavor,
color, odor, firmness, cleanliness, and kind of package.
Inspection of fish, fruits, vegetables, etc., shall be confined to kind, quality,
number, size, weight, and condition.
Food articles other than meat may be inspected at unofficial establishments of
contractors.
The inspection of food articles other than meat at receiving points of Govern-
ment agencies where Bureau inspectors are stationed shall consist in a thorough
examination for compliance with specifications.
Reports
M. I. Form 148 (revised) shall be used for reporting specification inspections for
Government agencies of meat and meat food products, and M. I. Form 148-C for
reporting inspections of food articles other than meat or meat food products. The
form shall be issued in duplicate for inspections for the Marine Corps and Coast

Woodworth, Wis., in the U. S. District Court for the Eastern District of Wiscon-
sin for the violation of the Virus-Serum-Toxin Law in shipping contaminated
rabies vaccine from Wisconsin to Tennessee and other southern States. The
company shipped the contaminated vaccine before it had completed essential
tests to determine that the product was satisfactory for marketing. Upon receipt
of complaints the Bureau directed the company to promptly suspend the marketing
of all rabies vaccine for an indefinite period.

Meat-Inspection Act
For offering uninspected meat for interstate shipment:
Dietz & Watson, Inc., Philadelphia, Pa., $50 fine. (B. A. I. M. I. case No. 1967.)

CERTIFICATION ON REIMBURSEMENT OF TRAVEL ACCOUNTS
The General Accounting Office has advised that for travel subsequent to October
31, 1942, the oath on Standard Form No. 1012-Revised, "Voucher for Per Diem
and/or Reimbursement of Expenses Incident to Official Travel," need not be
executed. In lieu of the oath the claimant should sign the reimbursement account
in the usual place after revising the certificate by blocking out the words "I do
solemnly swear (or affirm)" and substituting the words "I certify."
The penalty for presenting a fraudulent claim is a fine of not more than $10,000
or imprisonment for not more than 10 years or both. Falsification of an item in
an expense account works a forfeiture of the entire claim. When the supply of
old forms is exhausted new forms will be supplied on which the correct certificate
will appear.

The following amendments to the regulations of the Department have been
Issued:
Amendment 152, covering regulation 1423.
Amendment 153, covering regulation 4422.
