NOTICES REGARDING MEAT INSPECTION
BORAXED MEATS FOR ENGLAND AND WALES
Under the public health (preservatives, etc., in food) regulations of Great
Britain of 1925, as amended December 16, 1926, bacon, ham, etc., containing
preservatives such as borax, are prohibited sale in England and Wales on and
after July 1, 1927. Therefore, the use of borax should be discontinued on meats
shipped from the United States for consumption in England or Wales. However,
inspectors in charge will issue preservative certificates at exporters' risk for
meats packed in borax which will arrive in England or Wales on and after
July 1, 1927, provided that for each consignment the exporter shows on his
application (M. I. Form 116-A), that the meat is intended for reexport from
England or Wales in accordance with the British regulations.

BREAKING GOVERNMENT SEALS

It has been brought to the attention of the -Washington office that Government
seals on cars arriving at official establishments have been broken by establishment
employees through the permission or direction of bureau inspectors.
On investigation the inspectors who authorized the violation of the meat-
.inspection regulations in the breaking of seals undertook to defend their action on
the ground that the seals were not easily accessible and that their observance of
the seals being broken was equivalent to breaking them personally. This defense
is, of course, untenable in view of the regulation which specifically requires that
seals shall be broken at official establishments by bureau employees, and that no
person other than a bureau employee shall break any such seal. Inspectors are
urged to acquaint themselves fully with the regulations and instructions, particu-
larly the portions thereof relating to their own official activities.

THREE-SECTION RETAINED TAGS PRINTED IN RED INK

The bureau is prepared to supply the three-section retained tag printed in red
ink. Inspectors in charge of meat inspection who find. it advantageous in the
post-mortem inspection of hogs to affix distinctive three-section retained tags in
such positions on the carcass as to indicate the character or location of lesions may
obtain red tags on requisition.
Hereafter, when ordering three-section tags the color should be stated as
"three-section black tags" or "three-section red tags."








1927] SERVICE AND'REGULATORY ANNOUNCEMENTS 35

CERTIFICATE FOR ANIMAL CASINGS FOR DANZIG

The bureau is informed that the government of Danzig requires that animal
casings imported into that city shall be accompanied by an official certificate
similar to the revised certificate for animal casings for Austria. Therefore casings
intended for export to Danzig should be handled and certified as indicated in
Service and Regulatory Announcements of November, 1926.

Therefore, the use of borax should be discontinued on meatsshipped from the United States for consumption in England or Wales. However,inspectors in charge will issue preservative certificates at exporters' risk formeats packed in borax which will arrive in England or Wales on and afterJuly 1, 1927, provided that for each consignment the exporter shows on his,application (M. I. Form 116-A), that the meat is intended for reexport fromEngland or Wales in accordance with the British regulations.BREAKING GOVERNMENT SEALSIt has been brought to the attention of the .Washington office that Governmentseals on cars arriving at official establishments have been broken by establishmentemployees through the permission or direction of bureau inspectors.On investigation the inspectors who authorized the violation of the meat-4inspection regulations in the breaking of seals undertook to defend their action onthe ground that the seals were not easily accessible and that their observance ofthe seals being broken was equivalent to breaking them personally. This defenseis, of course, untenable in view of the regulation which specifically requires thatseals shall be broken at official establishments by bureau employees, and that noperson other than a bureau employee shall break any such seal. Inspectors areurged to acquaint themselves fully with the regulations and instructions, particu-larly the portions thereof relating to their own official activities.THREE-SECTION RETAINED TAGS PRINTED IN RED INKThe bureau is prepared to supply the three-section retained tag printed in redink. Inspectors in charge of meat inspection who find it advantageous in thepost-mortem inspection of hogs to affix distinctive three-section retained tags insuch positions on the carcass as to indicate the character or location of lesions mayobtain red tags on requisition.Hereafter, when ordering three-section tags the color should be stated as"three-section black tags" or "three-section red tags."
