NOTICE REGARDING MEAT INSPECTION

CONTAINERS OF MEATS FOR THE NAVY

Inspectors in charge of meat inspection will please be governed in accordance
with the following communication from the Bureau of Supplies and Accounts,
Navy Department:
In the delivery of fresh or frozen meats and meat products, packed in cases, it
has occurred in some instances that they have been rejected due solely to the fact
that contents of cases have slightly exceeded t~he maximum weights set forth in
specifications. In the endeavor to compactly fill containers it is recognized that
the net weights may occasionatlly be slightly in excess of the maximum provided
for. Therefore, in so far as the net weight of the product is concerned, a tolerance
of 5 per cent over the maximum prescribed for each case w~ill hereafter be allowed.

In the endeavor to compactly fill containers it is recognized that the net weights may occasionally be slightly in excess of the maximum provided for. Therefore, in so far as the net weight of the product is concerned, a tolerance of 5 per cent over the maximum prescribed for each case will hereafter be allowed.
