PART 2-REGULATIONS FOR THE

ENFORCEMENT OF THE FEDERAL FOOD, DRUG, AND COSMETIC ACT

New DRUGS AND DEVICES Sec. 2.109 New drugs; exemption from section

505 of the act. (Revised} $ 2.109 New drugs; exemption from section 505 of the act. A new drug shall not be deemed to be subject to section 505 of the act if it is a drug which is licensed under the Public Health Service Act of July 1, 1944 (58 Stat. 682; 42 U.S.C. Sup. V 201 et seq.), or under the animal virus-serum-toxin law of March 4, 1913 (37 Stat. 832; 21 U.S.C. 151 et seq.). (Sec. 701 (a), 52 Stat. 1055; 21 U.S.C. 371) (Reg., Jan. 16, 1947, effective Jan. 21, 1947, 12 F.R. 408]

1/2 ounce per oyster, shall be not less than 68 percent of the water capacity of the can in which packed. For the No. 1 can, often referred to as the No. 1 eastern oyster can, having outside dimensions of diameter 2 11/16 inches and height 4.0 inches, a drained weight of about 7.5 ounces of oysters is required.

At the hearing which resulted in the promulgation of this standard, there was insufficient evidence to warrant findings of fact on which to base a standard of fill of container when the drained weight of oysters in a particular can averages 12 ounce or more per oyster. No standard for oysters of such size was established at that time.

It has recently come to our attention that some packers of canned oysters are now putting up large oysters, not subject to the requirements of the fill of container standard, so that the drained weight in many instances is 5 ounces or even less for the No. 1 can. Although such canned oysters are not subject to the provisions of the full of container standard they are subject to the substantive provisions of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act. Section 402 (b) (2) of this act states that a food shall be deemed to be adulterated if any substance has been substituted wholly or in part therefor. Section 403 (d) of the act provides that a food shall be deemed to be misbranded if its container is so made, formed or filled as to be misleading. It is our opinion that these sections apply to canned oysters if water, brine, or liquid draining from oysters during processing, replaces a quantity of oysters which should be added to fill the can.

It is the intention of this agency to call a hearing as soon as practicable on proposals to adopt definitions and standards of identity and standards for fill of container for all canned oysters. In the meantime the Food and Drug Administration will apply the substantive provisions of the act to canned oysters where the container is not as full of oysters as is practicable without injury to the quality or appearance of the product. (Secs. 3, 12, 60 Stat. 238, 244; 5 U.S.C. 1002, 1011) [Statement, Feb. 3, 1947, 12 F.R. 883]

PART 3--STATEMENTS OF GENERAL POLICY OR INTERPRETATION

[ADDED] Sec. 3.1 Notice to packers of canned oysters. 3.2 Notice to packers and shippers of shelled

peanuts. $ 3.1 Notice to packers of canned oysters. Regulations fixing a standard of fill of container for canned oysters were promulgated on November 25, 1944 (21 CFR, 1944 Supp., 36.6). This standard requires that the drained weight of oysters, when the drained weight of such oysters in the can averages less than

ing from approximately 100 to 125 pounds each have failed to bear labeling as required by the terms of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act.

Shelled peanuts in sacks, whether or not shipped in carload lots, should bear the following information required by the law on food in package form:

(a) The name of the product.

(b) An accurate statement of net weight.

(c) The name and place of business of the packer or distributor.

This information should be conspicuously set forth. It may be printed or stenciled on each bag or, if desired, placed on tags which are securely attached to each bag.

The net weight marked on the bags must be the correct net weight of the peanuts at the time they are delivered to the carrier for interstate shipment. The tare weight of the bag should not be included in the weight declaration. (Sec. 3, 60 Stat. 238; 5 U.S.C. 1002) (Statement, June 2, 1947, 12 F.R. 3689)

NOTE: For findings of fact and conclusions re Docket No. FDC–44, see Appendix, infra.

$ 15.500 White corn meal; identity. (a) White corn meal is the food prepared by so grinding cleaned white corn that when tested by the method prescribed in paragraph (b) (2) of this section not less than 35 percent passes through a No. 12 sieve, not less than 45 percent through a No. 25 sieve, but not more than 35 percent through a No. 72 grits gauze. Its moisture content is not more than 15 percent. In its preparation coarse particles of the ground corn may be separated and discarded, or reground and recombined with all or part of the material from which they were separated, but in any such case the crude fiber content of the finished corn meal is not less than 1.2 percent and not more than that of the cleaned corn from which it was ground, and its fat content does not differ more than 0.3 percent from that of such corn. The contents of crude fiber and fat in all the foregoing provisions relating thereto are on a moisture free basis.

(b) (1) For the purposes of this section moisture is determined by the method prescribed in "Official and Tentative Methods of Analysis of the Association of Oficial Agricultural Chemists," 6th edition, page 259, sections 20.70 and 20.71; fat is determined by the method prescribed on pages 259 and 260, sections 20.70 and 20.73; and crude fiber determined by the method prescribed on pages 259 and 260, sections 20.70 and 20.74.

(2) The method referred to in paragraph (a) of this section is as follows:

Use No. 12 and No. 25 sieves, having standard 8-inch diameter, full height frames, complying with the specifications for wire cloth and sieve frames in "Standard Specifications for Sieves," published March 1, 1940, in L.
