PACKINGHOUSE NEWSLETTER



CANADIAN LABELING REQUIREMENTS

"Bilingual labeling (English & French) on all consumer goods subject to
Canadian federal labeling legislation submitted to Parliament will be mandatory,
at the point of the manufacturer, by December 16, 1975. This announcement came
in the course of a statement to the House of Commons, Ottawa, on December 17,
1970, by the Minister of Consumer and Corporate Affairs, Mr. Ron Basford, which
accompanied the second reading of the Consumer Packaging and Labeling Act. Most
pre-packaged products will be affected.

"It should be noted that imported goods will be subject to the same require-
ments as domestic products. While the government has set December 16, 1975 for
the general enforcement of the bilingual labeling requirement, specific earlier
dates may be fixed for products such as cosmetics, drugs, patent medicines,
pesticides, and food. We will attempt to keep you informed as the new regulations
are issued."

The above item, from Produce Packaging and Marketing Association Report
3(7), April 9, 1971, could have serious implications for what is often mistakenly
thought of as part of our "domestic market." This is an export market that has
its own regulations. It may seem that 1975 is a long way off, but it is just
around the corner. Like PPMA, we will attempt to keep you informed of further
developments.

BROWN RECLUSE SPIDER

The Brown Recluse spider continues to be a problem in southern states.
Florida Citrus Safety Association members were told at a recent meeting that a
grove worker has spent about a month in the hospital following a bite.

This spider is slightly smaller, but probably more poisonous, than the Black
Widow spider. Its color varies from light fawn to dark chocolate brown, and its
body is covered with short hairs. The distinguishing characteristic is that it
has a dark violin-shaped band over the thorax that begins just behind the eyes,
with the "handle" pointing toward the abdomen.

The bite is a mild sting that is sometimes ignored by the victim. Symptoms
include pain, nausea, cramps, and high fever beginning a few hours after the
bite. Surgery is sometimes required to excise the gengrenous area that may deve-
lop around the bite.










Brown Recluse Spider cont.

The Brown Recluse is shy of humans. If it gets into buildings, it hides in
dark places such as shoes, dresser drawers, and closet corners. When it selects
such hiding places, some contact with humans is inevitable.

Handling trash leaves, etc. in the packinghouse with bare hands is an obvious
hazard that should be avoided.


WHOOPS'

About 100 copies of the minutes of the meeting between the Produce Buyers'
School and the Florida Fresh Citrus Shippers' Association have been mailed out
before we found they included an error. This is on page 3, paragraph 2, line
29. Bob Fox tells me that the temperature pull-down in 50 hours was from 850
to 520 (not 620). He also pointed out that all the details of this study are
available in USDA publication ARS 52-42 of December, 1969, available from USDA/TFRD,
2607 N. Orange Avenue, Orlando, Florida 32804.

MEETINGS

Packinghouse Day

The Tenth Annual Packinghouse Day is scheduled for Wednesday, September
8, 1971, at the Agricultural Research and Education Center (formerly Citrus
Experiment Station), Lake Alfred. Attendance at this meeting grew to a standing
room only crowd last year. Reserve the date on your calendar, watch for the next
notice specifying the time of the meeting, and plan to arrive early to get a
seat and reserve a lunch.

Citrus Growers' Institute

The Citrus Growers' Institute is scheduled September 14-15, 1971, at the
Florida Citrus Showcase, Winter Haven. This program combines the South Florida
Citrus Institute and Camp McQuarrie Citrus Institute into a single program with
a more central location for the citrus industry.

Perishables Handling Conference

A national conference on the handling of perishables, January 9-11, 1972,
will be held at the University of Florida, Gainesville. Four commodity groups
(Fruits and Vegetables, Flowers and Foliage, Meats and Poultry, and Frozen
Foods) will meet in both joint and concurrent sessions. Representatives of
packing, transportation, buying, and warehousing are taking active parts in
planning the conference. The enrollment for this conference will be limited
to the facilities available. A brochure with a registration form for the Perish-
ables Handling Conference is being mailed to its members by the Florida Fresh
Citrus Shippers Association. We have copies for others available on request.
