RE: The tariff classification of prepared eggplants from Italy.

Dear Ms. Kloza:

In your letter dated January 3, 2000, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

Samples and an ingredients breakdown were submitted with your letter. The sample was forwarded to the U.S. Customs Laboratory for analysis. “Roasted Eggplants” consists of sliced eggplants in a liquid medium of sunflower oil, wine vinegar, salt, spices, calcium chloride, flavors, citric acid, and ascorbic acid. Laboratory analysis found the sample to contain 0.15 percent acetic acid.

The applicable subheading for the Roasted Eggplants will be 2005.90.9700, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other vegetables prepared or preserved otherwise than by vinegar or acetic acid, not frozenother vegetables and mixtures of vegetablesother. The rate of duty will be 11.2 percent.

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

A copy of the ruling or the control number indicated above should be provided with the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If you have any questions regarding the ruling, contact National Import Specialist Stanley Hopard at 212-637-7065.
