NOTICES REGARDING MEAT INSPECTION

SPECIAL CERTIFICATE FOR ANIMAL CASINGS FOR POLAND

Information has been received to the effect that the Govrernment of Poland
requires a special sanitary certificate, in both English and French, for animal
casmngs exported to that country. Accordingly, in the future Mi. I. Form 169
(Sanitary Certifcat~e) fully executed and signed on both sides shall be issued
in duplicate for each consignment of animal casings destined t~o Poland. Such
casings must be derived only from animals which have been United States
inspected and passed. Inspectors will satisfy themselves of the origin of the-
casings. A duplicate copy of M. I. Form 169 should be forwarded to the WT~ash-
ington office.
LABELING PRODUCTS "LSHANKLESS" AND "LHOCKLESS"~

The terms "shankless" and "hockiless" are applicable only to hams and
shoulders from which the shank or hock has been completely removed, thus
eliminating the entire tibia and fibula or radius and ulna, respectively, together
with the overlying muscle, skin, and other tissue.

NAVY SPECIFICATIONS FOR SAUSAGE, FRANKCFURTER STYLE

Inspe~t~ors in charge will please be governed by the following communication
received from the Bureau of Supplies and Accounts, Navyg Depart~ment., Wash-
ington, D. C.:
"Subject: Navy Department Specifications 56--S-24d, dated September 1, 1928.
"'1. In third line on page 2! of subject specification the word 'nitrate' appears
in error; the word 'nitrite' should be substituted therefore "

102 BUREAU OF ANIMAL INDUSTRY [November.

THE USE OF TRANSPORTATION REQUESTS

The General Accounting Office has recently seen fit to enforce strictly the
requirements of paragraph 20 of the travel regulations relative to the use, when
practicable, of transportation requests for all official travel when the fare is $1
or more. Inspectors in charge and others performing official travel will endeavor
to comply with this requirement, when practicable, and in all cases when requests
are not used a brief statement should appear in the account showing why their
use was not practicable. If any' transportation company, including stage and
autobus, refuses to accept requests, a statement to that effect will show the
impracticability. If an individual has not been furnished with a supply of
requests by the inspector in charge, a statement to that effect should appear in
the account. If supply has become exhausted it should be so stated, etc. The
mere statement that it was impracticable will not be accepted, but almost any
statement of the facts will show the impracticatbility;.
This notice applies to all future accounts. Supplies of requests should be
ordered in accordance herewith.

Fines have been imposed in prosecutions for violations of regulatory laws, as
reported to the bureau, as follows:
