REGULATORY ACTION GUIDANCE:
- Insect Infested Wheat
Reconditioning will be considered adequate when macroscopic examination of representative samples reveals an average of no more than 0.4% insect damaged kernels.
- Rodent Excreta Pellet Contaminated Wheat
Reconditioning will be considered adequate when all the following conditions are met:
- Not more than one pellet is found upon examination of 20 representative pints.
- The wheat has been scoured to the extent that examination of representative samples reveals that 50% or more of the kernels show removal of the surface seed coat layers down to the cross cell layer (removal of approximately 20% of the kernel) and practically all the beard is gone.
- Examination of representative samples shows no Salmonella organisms to be present; evidence proves the wheat has been heat treated in such a manner as to insure killing any Salmonella organisms present.
