BU EAU OF ANCIMAL INDUSTRY


NOTICES REGARDING MEAT INSPECTION

DHVERTING CARBS OF UNMARKED MEAT

The meat-inapection regulations permit unmarked meat in care bearing depart-
ment seals to be shipped to other oflicial establishments for further processing.
When meat is forwarded under this permission it is very izttportant for bureau
inspectors to know in advance the point of final destination.
Hereafter when a car bearing department seals is diverted from the original
destination shown otr the shipper's request for sealing, the shipper shall immedi-
ately communicate by wire or other quick means of communication with the
bureau inspectors in charge at the points of shipment, original destination and
new destination, and furnish these three inspectors with the information as
follows:
Number and initials of ear.
Kiind and amount of articles in car.
Official number of establishment from which car was shipped.
Official number of establishment to which car was originally destined.
Official number of establishment to which car was diverted.

BORAXED MEATS FOR BOOTLAND

Under the public health (preservatives, etc., in food) regulations of Scotland
of 1925, as amended July 1, 1927, bacon, ham, etc., containing preservatives
such as borax are prohibited sale in Scotland. Therefore, the use of borax
should be discontinued on ments shipped from the United States for consump-
tion in Scotland. However, inspectors in charge will issue preservative certifi-
cates at exporters' risk for meats packed in borax for Scotland, provided that for
each consignment the exporter shows on his application (M. I. Form 116--A) that
the meat is intended for reexport from Scotland in accordance with the Scottish
regulations.

72 . BUREAU OF ANIMAL INDUSTRY NOTICES REGARDING MEAT INSPECTION DIVERTING CARS OF UNMARKED MEAT ( September, The meat-inspection regulations permit unmarked meat in cars bearing department seals to be shipped to other official establishments for further processing. When meat is forwarded under this permission it is very important for bureau inspectors to know in advance the point of final destination. Hereafter when a car bearing department seals is diverted from the original destination shown onthe shipper's request for sealing, the shipper shall immediately communicate by wire or other quick means of communication with the bureau inspectors in charge at the points of shipment, original destination and new destination, and furnish these three inspectors with the information as follows: Number and initials of car. Kind and amount of articles in car. Official number of establishment from which car was shipped. Official number of establishment to which car was originally destined. Official number of establishment to which car was diverted. BORAXED MEATS FOR SCOTLAND Under the public health (preservatives, etc., in food) regulations of Scotland of 1925, as amended July 1, 1927, bacon, ham, etc., containing preservatives such as borax are prohibited sale in Scotland. Therefore, the use of borax should be discontinued on meats shipped from the United States for consumption in Scotland. However, inspectors in charge will issue preservative certificates at exporters' risk for meats packed in borax for Scotland, provided that for each consignment the exporter shows on his application (M. I. Form 116-A) that the meat is intended for reexport from Scotland in accordance with the Scottish regulations.
