To allow for variations in size incident to proper grading and handling, the following tolerances, by count, are established for off-size grade sweet cherries:
(1) No more than ten percent of the cherries in any inspection lot must measure less than 54/64 inches in diameter.
(2) Ten percent for cherries that fail to meet any specified maximum diameter when that maximum diameter is marked on the container or specified in terms of fractions of inches.
(3) When containers are marked with row count/row size or a lot is specified by row count/row size, no more than ten percent of the cherries in any inspection lot may fail to meet the corresponding diameter size listed in the table in WAC 16-414-011
(4) When containers are marked with a "minimum diameter," no more than five percent of the cherries in the container may fail to meet the corresponding diameter.
