on and after December 1, 1906.
JAMES WiLSON,
Secretary of Agriculture.


Regulation 61. Meats and meat-food products which have been
inspected and past and so marked, and which have been transported
from the establishments at which they were prepared into the channels
f- of trade, and which are alleged or known, to have become unsound,
unwholesome, or otherwise unfit for human food, may be transported
in interstate commerce under the following restrictions:
S(1) Inspected and marked meat or meat-food product which is
alleged to be unsound, unwholesome, or otherwise unfit for food may
be shipped by the owner thereof from one State or Territory or the Dis-
trict of Columbia to any establishment at which inspection is maintained
in the same or a different State or Territory, if a written permit in








duplicate for such shipment be first had and obtained from the Chief
of the Bureau of Animal Industry. In all such shipments both the
original and duplicate copies of the permits shall be surrendered to the
carrier accepting the meat or meat-food product, who shall require the
shipper to furnish three copies of the form of certificate hereinafter given.
One of these certificates and the duplicate copy of the permit shall be
retained by the carrier; another copy of the certificate, together with
original permit, shall be mailed by the carrier to the Chief of the Bureau
of Animal Industry, Washington, D. C.; and the third copy shall be
addrest and mailed by the carrier to the Bureau of Animal Industry
inspector in charge at the point to which the shipment is consigned.
Upon the arrival of the shipment at the establishment where inspection
is maintained the inspector in charge shall cause a careful inspection
to be made of the shipment, to determine whether or not it is unsound,
unwholesome, or otherwise unfit for food. Should the meat or meat-
food product contained in the shipment prove to be unsound, unwhole-
some, or otherwise unfit for food, it shall at once be stamped U. S.
Inspected and Condemned and be immediately tanked or removed to
the condemned room. If the meat or meat-food product contained in
the shipment shall prove to be sound, wholesome, and fit for food, the
inspector shall allow the meat or meat-food product to enter the
establishment.
(2) Inspected and marked meat or meat-food product which is
alleged to be unsound, unwholesome, or otherwise unfit for human food
may be shipped by the owner thereof from one State or Territory or the
District of Columbia to any jobber, wholesaler, or other dealer from
whom the said meat or meat-food product was purchased, if a written
permit, in duplicate, for such shipment be first had and obtained from
the Chief of the Bureau of Animal Industry. In all such shipments both
the original and duplicate copies of the permits shall be surrendered to
the carrier accepting the meat or meat-food product, who shall require the
shipper to furnish two copies of the form of certificate hereinafter given.
One of these certificates and the duplicate copy of the permit shall be
retained by the carrier, and the other copy of the certificate, together
with the original permit, shall be mailed by the carrier to the Chief of
the Bureau of Animal Industry, Washington, D. C. If the meat or
meat-food product which is shipped under this regulation proves to be
unsound, unwholesome, or otherwise unfit for human food, it may not
be reshipped in interstate commerce as a food product. Attention is
directed to the meat-inspection law, which provides a penalty of a fine
of $10,000 and imprisonment for two years for any person who ships for
human consumption in interstate or foreign trade any meat or meat-
food product which is unsound, unwholesome, or otherwise unfit for
human food.
(3) Inspected and marked meat or meat-food product which is known








to be unsound, unwholesome, or otherwise unfit for human food may be
shipped by the owner thereof from one State or Territory or the District
of Columbia to another State or Territory or the District of Columbia,
for use in the arts, such as the shipment of lard which has become unfit
for food to a soap factory for use in making soap. No such shipment
shall- be made unless and until a written permit, in duplicate, shall be
first had and obtained from the Chief of the Bureau of Animal Indus-
try. In all such shipments both the original and duplicate copies of
the permits shall be surrendered to the carrier accepting the meat or
meat-food product, who shall require the shipper to furnish two copies
of the form of certificate hereinafter given. One of these certificates and
the duplicate copy of the permit shall be retained by the carrier, and
the other copy of the. certificate, together with the original permit, shall
be mailed by the carrier to the Chief of the Bureau of Animal Industry,
Washington, D. C. In addition to the above requirements, no such
shipment shall be accepted by any carrier unless and until the meat or
meat-food product which is known to be unsound, unwholesome, or
otherwise unfit for food shall have been denatured or otherwise ren-
dered unavailable for food purposes under the supervision of an employee
of the Bureau of Animal Industry. The carrier shall also require the
shipper to certify that the meat or meat-food product has been so dena-
tured or otherwise rendered unavailable for food purposes. The written
certificate of the shipper that the meat or meat-food product has been
denatured shall be forwarded by the carrier to the Chief of the Bureau
of Animal Industry with the original permit and the shipping certificate.
(4) The-certificate required by this regulation shall be in the follow-
ing form and shall in all cases show a description and the weight of the
meat or meat-food product:
