Veterinary Inspector in Charge, Meat-Inspection Service. Accordingly, hereafter the use of M.

The certificate forms shall be supplied by the exporter. The wording of the certificate limits certification to casings derived

from animals slaughtered in official establishments and handled only in a sanitary manner. Inspectors will satisfy themselves of the origin of the casings and the sanitary handling thereof before issuing certificates. Furthermore, all such casings intended for exportation to New Zealand shall first be examined by bureau inspectors in official establishments and only those found fit for use as sausage containers in such establishments shall be certified. A copy of each certificate shall be forwarded to the Washington office.* [SRA, BAI 371, Mar. 1938]

24.19 Uninspected tallow, stearin, oleo oil, etc.; not to be exported unless exporter certifies as inedible. No tallow, stearin, oleo oil, or the rendered fat derived from cattle, sheep, swine, or goats, that has not been inspected, passed, and marked in compliance with the regulations in this subchapter shall be exported, unless the shipper files with the collector of customs at the port from which the export shipment is made an affidavit by the exporter that such article is inedible.** [Reg. 24, sec. 5]

24.20 Products packed with preservative for export; required stamps and certificates; affixing and removal of stamps. (a) Numbered stamps and certificates of a distinctive color, known as preservative stamps and certificates, shall be issued to identify all articles prepared or packed with preservatives for export. The stamps shall be securely affixed to containers of the article before they leave the establishment, in the manner prescribed by § 24.1 (b). Unless, upon special application to him, the Chief of Bureau shall otherwise direct, the certificates shall be issued before the articles leave the establishment, and shall be issued and used in the same way and shall serve the same purposes, respectively, as the certificates issued pursuant to § 24.3.

(b) Prior to export no preservative stamp required by this section shall be detached from the container except under the personal supervision of a bureau employee. If the preservative stamp is detached, then the article in the container shall be either repacked, in accordance with the provisions of § 18.12 (a) or (b), (c), or destroyed for food purposes under the supervision of a bureau employee.* [Reg. 24, sec. 6]

24.21 Meats packed in borax for export; handling, stamping, certifying, sealing, and transporting.

FOR EXPORT

(b) Preservative meat-inspection stamps shall be affixed and certificates issued only when the meat is about to be forwarded for immediate export.

(c) Such meats shall be prepared and packed in compartments of the establishment separate and apart from the compartments in which any meat or product is prepared or packed for domestic use or con

sumption, or they may be packed in the regular packing room provided no other meat or product is allowed in the packing room during the time of such packing. In the latter case, after the packing is completed the packing room shall be thoroughly cleansed of the preservative before the packing of other articles therein is resumed.

(d) When meats treated with borax are stored pending exportation they shall be held under bureau lock in a separate room, or in a substantially separated compartment, containing no other meat or meat food product.

(e) Permission must be obtained from the Washington office before meats packed in borax are shipped from one official establishment to another or to an unofficial establishment for storage. After such permission has been granted the instructions in paragraph (f) shall apply to shipments of this kind destined to official as well as unofficial establishments.

(f) Government seals shall be applied to the cars in which such meats are shipped and an M. I. Form 109-F issued for each shipment showing the contents to be packed in borax. The inspector in charge at destination should make arrangements whereby he will be notified of the arrival of such shipments, in order that a bureau employee may be detailed to break the Government seals and supervise the removal of the product to the establishment, where it shall be stored under bureau lock in a separate room, or in a substantially separated compartment, containing no other meat or meat product, until such time as the meat is to be forwarded for immediate export, when a reinspection should be made and if the product is sound, healthful, wholesome, and fit for human food the necessary export preservative stamps and certificates should be issued. However, in the case of product that is to be stored in a freezer it may be reinspected at the time it enters the establishment to avoid the necessity of defrosting the meat for reinspection at the time of export.* [ŠRA, BAI 336, Apr. 1935]
