REPORT.

(To accompany H. R. 52577

The Committee on Interstate and Foreign Commerce, to whom was referred the bill (H. R. 5257) to amend the act entitled "An act to fix a reasonable definition and standard of identity of certain dry milk solids” (21 U. S. C., sec. 321c), having considered the same, report favorably thereon with amendments and recommend that the bill as amended do pass.

The amendments are as follows:
Page 1, line 3, strike out "Numbered".
Page 1, line 7, strike out "For" and insert "That for".
Page 2, strike out lines 6 and 7, and insert in lieu thereof the
following:

The term "milk”, when used herein, means sweet milk of
COWB.

PURPOSE OF AMENDMENTS The amendments are technical in nature and are proposed by the committee in order to eliminate certain technical inaccuracies in the introduced bill.

PURPOSE OF LEGISLATION The purpose of the bill is to change the name of a product referred to in the act of March 2, 1944 (Public Law 244, 78th Cong., 20 U. S.C. 321c) from "nonfat dry milk solids or defatted milk solids" to "ponfat dry milk.” Public Law 244 fixes a definition and standard of identity for this product for the purposes of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act.

DEFINITION OF "NONFAT DRY MILI"

The word “solids” would be eliminated from the name “pondry
milk solids" because it is unnecessary. The name "nonfat dry milk"
accurately describes the product.

The bill also would eliminate entirely the alternative name "defattod
milk solids" used in Public Law 244 for this product. This alternative
name has seldom been used and is not generally known to the con-
suming public.

Hearings were held on this bill and testimony was received from the
Commissioner of Food and Drugs and the American Dry Milk
Institute in support of this legislation. The committee knows of no
opposition to the bill.

CHANGES IN EXISTING LAW
In compliance with clause 3 of Rule XIII of the Rules of the House
of Representatives, changes in existing law made by the bill, as intro
duced, are shown as follows (existing law proposed to be omitted is
enclosed in black brackets, new matter is printed in italics, existing
law in which no change is proposed is shown in roman):

(PUBLIC LAW 244-78TH CONGRESS)

Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United
States of America in Congress assembled, [That for] For the purposes
of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act of June 26, 1938 (ch. 675,

is the product resulting from the removal of fat and water from milk,
and contains the lactose, milk proteins, and milk minerals in the samo
relative proportions as in the fresh milk from which made. It con-
tains not over 5 per centum by weight of moisture. The fat content
is not over 1% per centum by weight unless otherwise indicated.

The term "milk”, when used herein, means sweet milk of cows.
