USDA/AMS RIN: 0581-AC52 Publication ID: Fall 2010 
Title: Standards for Condition of Food Containers (FV-08-0027) 
Abstract: The Agricultural Marketing Service (AMS) is proposing to revise regulations pertaining to "Standards for Condition of Food Containers" (7 CFR part 42). Periodically, AMS reviews inspection standards to determine if they meet current industry practices. Based on our most recent analysis, AMS believes that the standards need to be revised. The revisions are necessary in order to provide standards that reflect current U.S. industry practices. Revisions to the standards include, but are not limited to: (1) Incorporating new defects and updating current defects for metal, glass, rigid and semi-rigid, and flexible containers; (2) updating the standards to include new packaging technology such as aseptic packaging, metal cans with easy-open lids, plastic rings that hold several containers together; and (3) removing the Operating Characteristic (OC) curves for online sampling and inspection.
