Dear Mr. Reinke:

In your letter dated May 25, 1993, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

NATURAL VITAMINOR is a fine, brown powder, which is composed of brewers' yeast (inactive). You state that it is mixed in with the pigeon's feed because it is rich in protein and B vitamins.

You indicate that it is added to the pigeon's feed to promote overall health.

The applicable subheading for the the NATURAL VITAMINOR powder will be 2102.20.6000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for inactive yeasts; other single-cell micro-organisms, dead: other.

This merchandise may be subject to the regulations of the Food and Drug Administration. You may contact them at 5600 Fishers Lane, Rockville, MD 20857, telephone number (202) 857-8400.

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