NET CONTENTS STATEMENT ON WINE LABELS

Washington -- The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) has issued a notice of withdrawal to inform interested persons that it will not pursue rulemaking regarding the net contents statement on wine labels as proposed in Notice No. 861. The majority of commenters believed that allowing the net contents to be expressed in centiliters as an alternative to milliliters would be misleading and would result in consumer confusion.

For additional information, refer to the June 23, 1999, issue of the Federal Register, or visit the ATF web site at www.atf.treas.gov.
