RE: The tariff classification of an eye mask and a hot/cold pack from China.

Dear Mr. Gabriel:

The samples submitted with your first letter were examined and are being returned. Component material breakdowns were submitted with your second letter. The Sinus Eye Mask with Velcro Strip (item #C58M0338) is a flat eye mask measuring 8-3/4 inches long and 3-3/4 inches wide, with two elastic straps and hook and loop closure. The Hot/Cold Pack (item #C58M0339) is a rectangular shaped pouch measuring 19-1/2 inches long and 4-1/2 inches wide, secured on either end with hook and loop closures and nylon handles. Both items are composed of outer shells made from polyester fabric and filled with rice. The mask and hot/cold pack can be heated in a microwave or cooled in a refrigerator before applying to the eyes or forehead (mask) or the shoulders, waist, or thighs (hot/cold pack).

The applicable subheading for the eye mask (item #C58M0338) and the hot/cold pack (item #C58M0339) will be 1404.90.0000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for vegetable products not elsewhere specified or includedother. The rate of duty will be free.
