Disposition of Labels Printed Prior to
January 1, 1955 Bearing Old Caution Notices
Proprietors of internal revenue bonded warehouses; and others
1. Part 225.993, Title 26 of the 1954 Code of Federal Regulations
provides that every person bottling distilled spirits in bond, except
for export, shall attach to each bottle filled by him a caution notice
reading as follows:
This bottle has been filled and stamped under the
provisions of sections 5008 and 5243 Internal Revenue Code.
Any person who shall reuse the stamp affixed to this bottle .
or remove the contents of this bottle without so breaking
the stamp affixed thereto as to prevent reuse, or who shall
sell this bottle, or reuse it for distilled spirits, will
be liable to the penalties prescribed by law.
2. Since the new regulation requires such minor changes in the
caution notice previously used, no objection will be made to the use
of the existing stocks of approved labels bearing the old caution
3. Labels printed with the revised caution notice may be used
without resubmission of the labels for approval.
4. Inquiries in regard to this Industry Circular should refer
to the number thereof and the symbols O:AT:BP.
