Dear Ms. McKnight:

Á???????ÁIn your letters dated May 9, 2001, and June 18, 2001, you requested a ruling on the status of a snack seasoning from Canada under the NAFTA.

Á???????ÁA sample and ingredients breakdowns accompanied your letters. The sample was examined and disposed of. Chili Limon Seasoning 91781, is a bright orange colored powder consisting of 30©40 percent maltodextrin, 20©30 percent chili pepper, 15©20 percent salt, 5©10 percent citric acid, 1©5 percent each of paprika, cayenne pepper, black pepper, and silicon dioxide, and less than one percent each of oleoresin paprika, chili flavor, soybean oil, turmeric flavor, lime powder, paprika, and color.

Á???????ÁAll but four of the ingredients for the seasoning are products of either Canada or the United States. The exceptions are turmeric and red pepper from India, paprika from Spain, and black pepper from Indonesia or India. In Canada, the ingredients are mixed and packed for industrial use as a seasoning, applied to potato chips.

Á???????ÁThe applicable subheading for the seasoning will be 2103.90.8000, HTS, which provides for mixed condiments and mixed seasoningsÀÝ?ÀotherÀÝ?ÀotherÀÝ?Àother. The duty rate will be 6.4 percent ad valorem.
