For the purpose of a surveillance inspection, a distinction is made between leafy
and non-leafy produce items. If the product is determined to be a leafy item, the
inspector will establish net weight. If it is a non-leafy item, then all the sample units in
the shipping containers are counted.

a. Leafy Items. For the purpose of this inspection, leafy items will include such
vegetable items as cabbage, celery, lettuce, endive, escarole, cauliflower, broccoli,
romaine lettuce, and brussel sprouts. The defective portion of these vegetables can be
removed and the good portion can be used.

b. Non-Leafy Items. For the purpose of this inspection, non-leafy items will
include items such as sweet potatoes, turnips, apples, peaches, pears, plums,
nectarines, lemons, limes, grapefruit, avocados, pineapples, cucumbers, eggplant,
melons, dry onions, sweet peppers, beets, carrots, squash, corn on the cob, parsnips,
rutabagas, bananas, and pumpkins. The defective portion of these fruits and
vegetables cannot be removed and still supply the consumer with a usable (eatable)
product.
