IMPORT TARIFFS APPLY TO ONE THING OR ANOTHER

Import Tariffs Apply to One Thing or Another

By Eric F. Greenberg, Attorney-at-law

Import Tariffs Apply to One Thing or Another

Questions recently arose about whether a specific shape of pasta was actually a drinking straw.

The other day, my pal Larry Friedman, also a lawyer, sent me an article he had found about the shortage of bucatini pasta. It’s a funny article, available on grubstreet.com. Bucatini is a tubular pasta shape with a hole longways through the middle. Larry thought the story would interest me because it included discussion of the Food and Drug Administration’s “standard of identity” for macaroni. (This column has discussed such standards in the past).
