Amendment No. 7 to B. A. I. Order No. 137 (Regulations Governing the
Meat Inspection of the United States Department of Agriculture).


REGULATIONS GOVERNING THE ADMISSION INTO ESTABLISHMENTS
WHERE INSPECTION IS MAINTAINED OF THE CARCASSES AND MEAT
AND MEAT-FOOD PRODUCTS OF ANIMALS WHICH HAVE NOT HAD
POST-MORTEM INSPECTION BY AN INSPECTOR OF THE BUREAU OF
ANIMAL INDUSTRY AT THE TIME OF SLAUGHTER; THE INTER-
STATE AND FOREIGN TRANSPORTATION OF IMPORTED MEAT AND
MEAT-FOOD PRODUCTS AND THE INTERSTATE TRANSPORTATION
OF CERTAIN MEAT AND MEAT-FOOD PRODUCTS ON HAND ON
OCTOBER 1.
U. S. DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE,
OFFICE OF THE SECRETARY,
Washington, D. C., December 5, 1906.
For the purpose of preventing the use in interstate commerce of meat
and meat-food products which are unsound, unwholesome, unhealthful,
or otherwise unfit for human food, under authority conferred upon the
Secretary of Agriculture by the provisions of the act of Congress
approved June 30, 1906 (34 Stat., 674), the following new regulations,
and an amendment to the amendment to paragraph (j) of Regulation
50, are hereby prescribed for the transportation in interstate and foreign
commerce of the meat and meat-food products of cattle, sheep, swine,
and goats.
This regulation, which for the purpose of identification is designated
as Amendment No. 7 to B. A. I. Order No. 137, shall become and be
effective at once.
JAMES WILSON,
Secretary of Agriculture.


Regulation 62. Meat and meat-food products from the carcasses
of animals which have not had post-mortem inspection by inspectors of
the Bureau of Animal Industry at the time of slaughter will not, except
as hereinafter provided, be admitted into establishments where inspec-
tion is maintained. The exception to this rule applies only to car-
casses with the head and all viscera, except the stomach, bladder, and







intestines, held together by natural attachments. Such carcasses, if
offered for admission into an establishment where inspection is main-
tained, shall be inspected, and if found to be free from disease and
otherwise sound, wholesome, healthful, and fit for human food, they
will be marked U. S. Inspected and Passed" and admitted into
establishments where inspection is maintained. If found to be dis-
eased, unsound, unwholesome, unhealthful, or otherwise unfit for human
food, they will be marked "U. S. Inspected and Condemned," and the
proprietor of the establishment where inspection is maintained will be
required to destroy them for food purposes. This is an absolute require-.
ment of the meat-inspection law and can not be waived or departed
from in any instance or particular.
Regulation 63. Establishments where inspection is maintained
which also process or prepare imported meat or meat-food products
will be required to conduct such processing or preparation in a building
separate and apart from the building in which domestic meat and meat-
food products are prepared under Department supervision. The
Attorney-General, in opinion dated September 27, 1906, ruled that the
meat-inspection amendment did not cover the transportation of
imported meat and meat-food products. Therefore, imported meat
and meat-food products which have not been mixt with or added to
domestic meat or meat-food products may be exported to any foreign
country without the certificate required by Regulation 45, as amended
by Amendment No. 3 to B. A. I. Order No. 137. However, the col-
lector of customs should require an affidavit that any such meat or
meat-food product offered for export is in fact imported and not mixt
with or added to any domestic meat or meat-food product.
Regulation 64. Imported meat and meat-food product which has
not been mixt with or added to domestic meat or meat-food product
may be transported in interstate commerce. When any imported meat
or meat-food product which has not been mixt with or added to any
domestic meat or meat-food product is offered to any common carrier
for transportation from one State or Territory or the District of Colum-
bia to another State or Territory or the District of Columbia as inter-
state or foreign shipment, the person, firm, or corporation offering such
imported meat or meat-food product shall make the following certificate,
in duplicate, and deliver the same to the common carrier:

Date -----------------, 190
Name of carrier to which offered-------------------------------
Shipper ---------------------------------------------------
Consignee-------------------------------------------------------------------
Point of shipment--------------------------------------------------------
Destination----------------------------------------------------------------
Car number and initial -------------------------------------------
(Need not be given in the caae of express companies or ships.)






The following-described meats or meat-food products are imported and have
not been mixt with or added to any domestic meat or meat-food product, and
are sound, healthful, wholesome, and fit for human food:
Description and weight of shipment.


__ __ ___ ___ __ __ ___ __- - - - - --__ __ __- - --- --Ml --' ** -->" - "--- -W --- __--- --> -- W i M M--- --


(Signature of shipper.)

The duplicate certificate shall be forwarded immediately by the initial
carrier to the Chief of the Bureau of Animal Industry, Washington,
D. C. The waybills, transfer bills, running slips, or conductors' cards
accompanying a car containing a shipment of imported meat or meat-
food product made under this regulation must have embodied in,
stamped upon, or attached to the same a certificate in the following
form by the issuing railroad company:
(Name of railroad company).----------------
Imported meat and meat-food product not mixt with domestic meat or meat-
food product, as evidenced by shipper's certificate on file with initial carrier.
(Signed)---------------------, Agent.

Regulation 50. Paragraph (j) of Regulation 50, as amended by
Amendment No. 4 to B. A, I. Order No. 137, is hereby further amended
by inserting the words "and December" after the word "November"
in the seventh line of. the said paragraph and by inserting the words
"and January, 1907," after the figures "1906" in the seventh line of
said paragraph. The effect of this amendment is to add two months to
the time during which sweet pickled, dry salted, smoked, and other
similar meats, lard, lard compounds, lard substitutes, butterine, and
oleomargarine, which were on hand on October 1, may be inspected and
past and moved in interstate commerce.
