June 8, 1970
Thank you for your letter of June 2 with which you
enclosed a letter to you from the Montana Livestock Sanitary
Board concerning the inquiry of Mr. Jim Harris, Employee of
Dick's Grocery, Valier, Montana.
Since your letter was written, this Committee reported,
and the Senate passed, S. 3592, to take care of the situation
described in the letter from the Livestock Sanitary Board.
S. 3592 would permit Dick's Grocery to engage in custom slaughtering
and also in the retail sale of meat and meat products. When
the law is fully effective, retail sales of meat and meat food
products covered by the Meat Inspection Act would have to be
confined to those which had been slaughtered and prepared in
accordance with that Act. Inspection would not be required for
custom slaughtering done in accordance with the exemption provided
by that Act.
Copies of S. 3592 and this Committee's report on it
With kindest personal regards, I am
