The product consists of cured ham meat, with water and smoke flavor added, which has been chunked and canned. Some ground ham is added to the chunks in the canning process.

The applicable subheading for "BRISTOL" brand CANNED CHUNK HAM will be 1602.41.2020, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for Ham and cuts thereof:...Other:...Boned and cooked and packed in airtight containers...In containers holding less than 1 kilogram. The rate of duty will be 6.6 cents per kilogram.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Section 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).

A copy of this ruling letter should be attached to the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If the documents have been filed without a copy, this ruling should be brought to the attention of the Customs officer handling the transaction.
