RE: The tariff classification of a digital kitchen scale from China.

Dear Ms. Trotta:

This scale can accommodate up to 5 kilograms (kg), measures in 1 gram (g) increments, and has a sensitivity of +/- 8 grams. It has a 1.25-inch by .69-inch LCD screen which displays the digital weight readout as well as any error messages. This scale also features an “on-off” button, a “mode” button to switch between different weighing units (kilograms, grams, pounds, and ounces), and a “T/Z” (tare/zero) button. It is powered by a single CR2032 lithium cell battery, included in the package.
