RE: The tariff classification of bruschetta from Italy

Dear Ms. Mollinary:

In your letter dated February 9, 2004 you requested a tariff classification ruling.

It is said to be composed of 35 percent red and yellow peppers, 28 percent sunflower oil, 13 percent ricotta cheese, 8 percent tomato sauce, 3 percent each of onions and capers, 2 percent each of pecorino romano cheese, grana padano cheese, and potato flakes, and less than one percent each of sugar, salt, spices, wine vinegar, and preservatives. Pepper Bruschetta will be imported in 10-ounce jars, for retail sale.

The applicable subheading for the Pepper Bruschetta will be 2106.90.9998, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for food preparations not elsewhere specified or includedotherotherother. The rate of duty will be 6.4 percent ad valorem.
