FV-205376 Giant Twist contains layers of red, orange, and green chili peppers in a liquid medium, inside a glass bottle measuring 18 inches tall and 4 inches at its base. Laboratory analysis found the item contained 5.37 percent acetic acid.

The applicable subheading for item no. FV-205736 Giant Twist will be 2001.90.3800, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for vegetables, fruit, nuts and other edible parts of plants, prepared or preserved by vinegar or acetic acid...other...vegetables...other. The rate of duty will be 9.6 percent ad valorem.

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 646-733-3029.
