Plants listed in [section 1] produce products that are manufactured from dairy ingredients meeting the requirements found in the regulations or originate from USDA-approved plants and are therefore eligible for USDA grading or inspection service ... Plants listed in [section 2] may have products produced from dairy ingredients that did not originate from USDA-approved plants (unapproved source plants) ... This publication is revised every three months to reflect changes in plant approval codes and to include new plants"--Preface.
