ACTION: Notice of Intent to Repeal Subject 40-7-3 entitled Additional Regulations Applicable to Corn Meal

TO ALL INTERESTED PERSONS AND PARTIES:

Pursuant to the Official Code of Georgia Annotated, O.C.G.A. §§ 26-2-34, 26-2-296, and 50-13-4, notice is hereby given that the Georgia Department of Agriculture will be accepting written comments regarding the repeal of Subject 40-7-3 entitled Additional Regulations Applicable to Corn Meal. The Department will be accepting written comments from July 8, 2019, to close of business (4:30 p.m. EST) on August 9, 2019.

SYNOPSIS, MAIN FEATURES AND DIFFERENCES:

The Department is proposing to repeal Food Division Regulations Subject 40-7-3 entitled Additional Regulations Applicable to Corn Meal. The manufacture, processing, and distribution of corn meal is covered in the Food and Drug Administration’s Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Title 21 Parts 117 and 137, both of which are adopted by reference in Department Rule 40-7-18-12 entitled Adoption of Reference. The retail processing, sale, and labeling of corn meal is covered under Departmental Subject 40-7-1 entitled Retail Food Sales.

Repealing Subject 40-7-3 will eliminate the possibility of contradictory requirements and provide clarification that the Manufactured Food Regulations (Subject 40-7-18) and Retail Food Regulations (Subject 40-7-1) contain the current regulatory requirements of corn meal.

COMMENT PERIOD AND ADDITIONAL INFORMATION:

The Department will be accepting written comments from July 8, 2019, to close of business (4:30 p.m. EST) on August 9, 2019. Please submit written comments to:
